Summer Picnic Basket Ideas For Your Tot

734ab30af9d33bc84309fe446c6f18bcWhile summers are all about being outdoors, hitting the beach and having a great time, it’s also the perfect time for a picnic.

Having a picnic doesn’t need any special occasion – the best part about a picnic is that you can do it with your kids anytime!

Whether it’s at the beach, the park, your society garden, terrace, balcony or even inside your own living room, there are a few basic things you would need to create that picnic atmosphere:

  • paper plates and cups
  • disposable spoons
  • picnic cloth to sit on
  • picnic basket
  • hand sanitisers
  • disposable napkins
  • easy eatables and drinks
  • bin bag to dispose the empty plates and other waste

38082eeb81a19e3d47a290b6238aaf7fAs most picnics are held in summer, the key is to have food in the picnic basket that won’t spoil in the heat. And since you’ll be planning this for kids, it’s important that these are easy to eat and less messy. Here are a few suggestions for the different kinds of things you can pack in the picnic basket:

  • mini sandwiches
  • fruit kebabs – fruit slices attached in straws
  • salad
  • fruit chaat
  • pasta
  • noodles
  • home-made fruit punch/fruit juices/milk shakes if you know kids are going to have it soon after it’s made (milk shakes will get spoiled fast if kept for a longer time outside)
  • lemonade
  • bread and jam
  • baked beans is a great source of protein and provides instant energy
  • crackers with toppings
  • cookies
