Things to prepare for a holiday picnic

Enjoy a sunny and organize a picnic with your family and friends this coming All Soul’s or All Saint’s Day!


The best options are always the city park or beaches but when it’s time to visit loved ones who have passed, cemetery parks make a very picturesque place to have a relaxing family picnic.  

Tip: so that everything goes well, make sure, as much as possible, it will be good weather on the day of the picnic and that the place chosen has a good set up (access, washrooms). If none are available, make sure to have the entire family go to the bathroom beforehand.


Make a list of all the family members’ favorite food and drink. Pack enough for everyone to share.

In lunch boxes, there has to be room for fruit, sandwiches, cakes, juices and lots of water (especially for children who spend the day running from one side to the other and who need good hydration).

Make sure you do not forget to bring blankets, napkins, plastic cups and plates, cooler bags (to preserve the temperature of the fruit and beverages, for instance).

Tip: take large garbage bags so that nothing is messing up the environment. It is irresponsible to leave huge cans, paper or leftover food scattered on the ground.


Organizing a picnic is a dream day for the little ones (and some adults too!) and, therefore, it is important to plan some activities. Some ideas for games: tag, hide and seek, frog jump, pass the ball or Frisbee the delight of children.

For the adults, cards, board games or a simple guitar (there are nails!) arrive and are left.

Tip: if you take a radio to listen to music, mind the volume so as not to disturb others "picnic-ers". Oh, and do not forget the camera, of course!


Have the kids wear clothes with light cotton fabric to stay cool. Using Downy fabric conditioner on their clothes also ensures a clean, fresh scent on your little ones’ clothes all day. During the picnic, expect there to be at least one child that does not end the day without looking all dirty from head to toe.

Tip: take jackets to deal with a sudden change of weather.

as parents dont forget to consider your childs choice of place. Usually, kids love to swim or any place where they can run and play. Let them enjoy the place. Sometimes parents gets to protective. They dont want to get their child got that scars or sweat. But for me as mother of two girls, having some bruises sometimes makes them more tough in facing life. Let them enjoy the place that's why its really adviseable if their clothes smell good that last longer. Thanks to Downy.
