    My favourite thing ever is a good picnic out in the countryside! Lazing in the shade of a big tree on a sunny day, preferably by a little stream so the children can have a paddle (and the grown ups!) lots of yummy picnic food, a nice cooling breeze to take the edge off the heat, all the time in the world – and no washing up! 🙂 Love it! And food just tastes so much better!

    A picnic gives everyone a chance to relax and kick back. The kids enjoy eating outdoors. When my boys were young we used to put pots of fruit and jelly in too. We treated it like a party. Lots of games, running and football. Loads of fun and tires the kids out ready for a good nights sleep!

    I love the anticipation of a picnic, picking a place, buying and preparing the food, packing it up so precisely in the little containers, then building an appetitie in the fresh air, roaming, and laughing and chasing the giggling children, then collapsing on the rug, and munching happily.

    The best thing about a picnic is that it is so much cheaper than taking the whole family out for a meal. Being a family of 5, it gets quite expensive to go to a restaurant, not to mention stressful when all my three small boys want to do is play. Having a picnic means that the boys get to eat exactly what they want while being able to play at the same time; it can be as healthy as I want to make it; I get control over the variety of food available (plus control over what it costs).

    We always take a picnic on our days out to castles or parks, and my boys like nothing better than kicking a ball around in between eating a cheese sandwich.

  76. Louise Smith
    May 26, 2012 / 9:09 pm

    It’s far easier than eating in a cafe/restauant with a child. No waiting/queuing, it’s cheaper, you know that they’ll eat what you’ve prepared and you don’t have to worry about them being noisy. Picnics are fun especially in a nice location on a warm sunny day

  77. Catherine
    May 26, 2012 / 9:20 pm

    ants on the crisps, grass in the juice, wasps strafing the children, houmus on the wool rug, hint of sunburn, looming rainclouds. I love it all!

    I love being able to spread out on the grass in the garden or by a beautiful lake or river, eat whilst wearing a bikini and getting a tan over lunch. Watching wildlife, throwing titbits to ducks, geese and swans or the smaller birds on the water always lifts my mood, and if I have good company it’s even better. People-watching can sometimes be quite entertaining too!

    The best thing about a picnic is being in the outdoors, enjoying the fresh air. That is, if you choose your location carefully – through necessity (not choice) we’ve picniced in some very odd places in the past, and you don’t get much fresh air in a motorway services car park!

    2. Being in a natural environment – the breeze in my hair, the sounds of the stream etc.
    3. It can be much cheaper to have a picnic than go to a restaurant.

    I had never been on a picnic in my life until I was 25! My fiancee took me and our children to the local woods, where we cooked on the free BBQ there, we made a base with a heap of car-blankets and trees, the place was empty despite the weather being absolutely perfect, cloudless sky with the perfect breeze, and we stayed there until early evening, watching the sun over the trees while the kids started to doze in the car. It was the most wonderful day, and despite the fact I forgot my camera and my phone was out of charge, I didn’t need to take pictures to remember how utterly happy and blissful I felt that day. Nothing mattered at all and we are so glad the weather is nice again as I want to go all the time!

    May 31, 2012 / 12:15 pm

    I love it all, from the excitement of getting up and peering through the windows to check that its sunny to the making of the sandwiches and flasks of tea. I love finding that perfect spot on the grass that’s not too lumpy so your drink doesn’t fall over and there’s no flies buzzing round. Then the food always tastes so much better off paper plates – fresh salad and sandwiches, strawberries, crisps and cup cakes. I want to go on a picnic now.

  194. Robert W
    May 31, 2012 / 12:47 pm

    The best thing about picnics is that you can eat whenever and wherever your heart desires or your tummy rumbles. Just being in the fresh outdoors with a breeze in your hair and the warm sun on your skin seems to create a healthy appetite. I have picnics most days with my son in the summer and then there is no time limit about getting back for dinner. Enjoy, have fun and make the best of the summer. x

    the whole experience..the kids love choosing what to pack in the cooler to eat, they love deciding where to go, then they enjoy playing in the Great Outdoors and I altenately enjoy relaxing and watching them or joining in with a game of rounders! They are never happier though than if we choose somewhere that has a little stream to play in, then I have a struggle to get them home again!!!

It’s a family affair getting the hamper ready with lots of goodies to eat and drink. But, you also have to take all the paraphanalia that goes with it! Rug, chairs, bats and balls, games, change of clothing, towels (we always find water) dog. Bring on the Summer sunshine.x

    We just love being outdoor, so having a picnic in our local park, Worden Park, Leyland, is always high on the agenda.
    We pack out bags with sandwiches, fingers foods & drinks, not forgetting the bread to feed the ducks & walk the short distance.
    We also have our balls & bats to use up all that energy running around playing a game. We love playing rounders & often other families will come & join in, its so much fun & a great way of making friends.
    All the fresh air will eventually tire them out, so its another quick drink then head for home.
    A cheap but fun filled afternoon away from all of lifes other pressures. Its an escape for all of us.

    Picnics as a Childminder are a wonderful thing. The children socialise. We are away from the television and the general distractions of being indoors and their appetites outdoors soar! They will try new foods and eat more healthily just from being in a different environment. Also they are free to roam around a little and enjoy being outside and work off their meal afterwards with a lovely walk home. I do love picnics. I think we will have many of them this Summer ^_^

    May 31, 2012 / 10:01 pm

    For me it’s about being together with the people I care about, eating the food I’ve prepared, kicking back and being daft and just “being”
    There’s no rules, no need to rush. You can catch up properly, find out new things about each other and press the record button in your head to never forget it. It’s more than food outside, it’s a Moment.
    It’s something to look back on for many reasons, and make you nostalgic and misty eyed or just to have a secret smile over, or send you into fits of giggles on the bus.
    …Pass me the chicken drumsticks xxx

  240. Holly Foxwell
    May 31, 2012 / 10:18 pm

    I love getting away from everything with a picnic, taking the family and taking everything you need and going somewhere secluded or even somewhere really busy (but with no need to go and get anything) and enjoying quality time with family and sometimes friends. As if there is no other care in the world other than a picnic with good company!

  241. Caroline Cummins
    May 31, 2012 / 10:40 pm

    The best and most mind-boggling thing about having a picnic is that my kids suddenly develop a willingness to eat things that if I presented INSIDE a house would be simply laughed at. But I watch as they tuck into salads and houmous, crispbreads and carrot sticks!! I mean, its just unbelievable!! I think psychologists should look into this phenomenon immediately

  242. Katie Robertson

As soon as the nice weather spell we had last week started, my daughter asked “Can we have a picnic now it’s sunny, Mummy?” And indeed we did, at a lovely country park a short drive away from home, followed by another picnic in our back garden the next afternoon!

    Best thing is leaving the kids with grandparents and enjoying the peace and serenity of your picnic spot with your partner away from the screaming, shouting, tantrums and finger poking from the little demons.

    the best thing about picnics is the quiche, followed by watching the little ones run riot then crash into a lovely nap whilst we relax (also liked you on fb x) x

    The best thing about picnics for me is that you can snack on them all day long, no having to wait in long queues and struggle to find a table.

    I love picnics, eating in the fresh air makes food extra special. I like putting a picnic together, making little cakes and sandwiches getting the kids in the car and stopping somewhere gorgeous to enjoy.

    Picnics are always a great day out with the kids. We find so many new places to explore, lunch in hand.
    Our family picnics are going to be a big part of childhood memories 🙂

    Getting sunburnt , stung by nettles & wasps , chased by a raging bull, struck by lightning during a summer storm , eating warm & weeping sandwiches , getting ants in your pants but most of all getting out in the fresh air and enjoying yourself!

    The best thing about a picnic is you can be spontaneous and it can happen anywhere – great to have a picnic in the garden with the grandchildren or even sitting under a blanket in the front room playing make believe its not raining.

    The best thing about a picnic has to be not having to clean up after. I have an 8 month old little girl and you can imagine the mess she makes with her food haha! At least if we are outdoors the crumbs can be left for the birds :o)

    Love picnics especially the freedom it gives us. You can have a picnic anywhere from the town centre to the beach. Of course the more beautiful parts of the countryside make picnics even more pleasurable but we’ve had picnics in airport lounges as well as the grounds of stately homes.

    The best thing about a picnic- poem
    A picnic can be in the park with a best friend,
    You can sit there and eat till the days end.
    A picnic with your brother, sister or someone you love,
    the peace and quiet, the sign of a dove.
    So I think a picnic is a box with a meaning,
    The best thing about a picnic is the faces that is gleaming.

    I love being outside, watching the world go by with my husband and our little boy. Eating a mini buffet of lovely picnic foods and then finishing off with a kick about of the football – just add sunshine for a perfect way to spend an afternoon.
