Basket of Fun

We created this Picnic Magic Garden, drum roll please, for on a picnic. Our mini picnic basket holds all the magic and this is the perfect way to entertain kids when the family wants a fun and affordable night together. You can create a mini-picnic for action figures, bears or mini versions of your family. You can role play each other or just let the kids have some fun while the adults get a moment to be grateful for some quiet time as a family out in nature.

Family Picnic Tips

Picnics are so much fun! Here are three simple tips to having a great and simple picnic with your family. Want more ideas? Use our perfect picnic checklist below.

1 Simple Food: Have food that is simple to pack, and will not spoil. Think sandwiches, fruits and dessert bars.

2 Bring the Right Supplies: Envision the picnic before hand. You want to bring enough, but not too much so it’s hard to carry.

3 Better than Before: After your picnic be sure to pick everything up and a little more. Parks are the best when trash-free and recycle everything you can.
