As a society, have we lost the art of the picnic? Drive-thru fast food reigns supreme with our kids but maybe we should get back to basics? Here’s how to put together the perfect picnic…
✱ Opt for reusable plastic tableware to avoid chipping crockery in transit and to be kinder to our environment via reducing single-use plastics. Plus, if you buy some quality plastic tableware and build a picnic kit, you’ll be telling the universe you want to go on picnics again and again!
✱ Two smaller baskets will be easier to carry than one full big one, especially if your picnic spot is far from the car. One insulated basket is a great idea.
✱ Random useful things to throw in your picnic basket that can be easily overlooked: Tea towel, salt and pepper, cooking oil (for BBQs), a roll of paper towel (for cleaning and using as napkins) and insect repellent.
✱ Taking your picnicing game next level? Pack a small fold- up table and portable sound/ Bluetooth speaker.
