Tips for Having an Indoor Picnic
- Fill unconventional packaging with lunchable goodies (ex: mason jars or chinese take out boxes)
- Wrap each item with love, even attaching a tag or note of gratitude (what I love about you, I'm thankful for _____ about you, etc)
- Think about making individual baskets for each person including drinks, utensils, napkins, wet wipes for tidying, etc
- If the picnic is for children, allow the kiddos to pack their own lunches and hunt for items that begin with a specific letter
- Think out of season - if it's a winter picnic, prepare goodies normally eaten during the summer
Bringing the picnics indoors means they aren't just for the summer months anymore. We still have indoor picnics to this day. One Valentine's Day it was too cold to celebrate outdoors, so we had a snowy picnic by the lake in the car.
Get creative and establish out of the box traditions that your loved ones will cherish for a lifetime. Doing something unconventional will make memories that last. It's the perfect time to have some indoor fun right before the school season starts! Do you have indoor picnics? If so, what are some of your indoor picnic ideas?
