Plan your picnic food items list like a Pro Picnicker

There are picnics inside, outside, in the backyard, at the park or beach, before or after a baseball game, and anytime of the year. Whatever you’re planning, here are some things to keep in mind when planning your picnic:

-What is the occasion? Is it a birthday party? Is it a company picnic?
-Where will it be? Will you be eating at someone's house or in the park?
-How many people will there be? This will help determine how much food is needed.
-What time of day will it be?

Step 1

Food and drinks

There are lots of different foods you can bring to a picnic, but what should you bring? Have a look at some juicy or crispy ideas.
Fruit: apples, bananas, oranges, strawberries
Vegetables: carrots, celery, onions
Cheese: cheddar cheese slices, string cheese
Crackers and breads: wheat thins, Triscuits
Salads: chopped lettuce and tomatoes with olive oil dressing
Dips: guacamole or salsa dip with tortilla chips
Cold cuts: ham or turkey sandwiches on whole-wheat rolls
You might also want to pack beverages. One idea is water in plastic bottles. Another choice is lemonade or iced tea. And don't forget the ice! You'll need it to keep your cooler cold while you're out and about.

Step 3

Picnic games and activities

One of the best things about picnics is that they provide a perfect opportunity to get everyone together, relax, and have some fun. Here are some great picnic games and activities to play.

-Duck, Duck, Goose – A classic game of tag that’s been around since the 1600s, this can be played on the ground or in a swimming pool.
-Musical Chairs – Another oldie but goodie! You can play this game with chairs or with cones set out on the lawn.
-Tug of War – This classic game can be challenging for kids and adults alike; it’s a test of strength and coordination between two teams of people or just one person pulling against themselves.

Step 4

Cloths

If you’ve never been to a picnic before, you might not know that cloths are a must. You’ll want at least two: one for your backside and another as a tablecloth or blanket cover. Additionally, it’s important to have at least one large sheet or towel set aside for the same purposes. In addition to these items, you may want extra bedding in case of inclement weather.

Picking a spot to enjoy your picnic is important, too. If you’re going on an urban adventure, find a shady spot with plenty of trees and benches. If you’re venturing out into a field or forest, make sure there are some natural barriers to keep the bugs away from your food.

When planning your picnic and your list of foods for outing, there are some things to remember to make it the best one yet.
-The most important thing is to bring a lot of water and pack whatever you need for any allergies or dietary restrictions.
-Bring a variety of food so that everyone can have something they like and so that you have leftovers for dinner.
-Invest in good utensils - paper plates, plastic forks, cups, napkins.
-Plan your menu in advance and have a full shopping list handy on your phone so you don't forget anything at the store.
-If you're feeling adventurous, take homemade food instead of store bought.

When thinking of your picnic equipment, keep in mind what you should rather not bring to a picnic:
- Anything that can spoil like foods and drinks, such as eggs.
- Clothing or shoes with rubber soles which will leave marks on the grass
- Sharp objects (knives, scissors) in order to avoid injury
