DealDash is here to help you plan the most memorable picnic of the summer. Read on for more information.
Summer is the perfect time to spend time with your family, and do some fun outside activities. The weather is getting warmer, and it is time to relax and have a good time. You may be wondering what are some good ways to spend time with your family outside during the summer. One of the best ways is to have a summer picnic. Here are three tips to help you have the perfect summer picnic:
Pick the Right Spot
Picking the perfect spot is the first step in planning a summer picnic. You can have a picnic on the beach, or you can find an area where there is a lot of shade such as a park. Having a picnic in the shade is the best bet so your food can stay fresh. You also want to pick a spot that has a grassy area so you can put a blanket down. Be careful to watch out for ants and other critters before you put your blanket down.
Plan Your Menu
When it comes to planning a picnic your menu should not be complicated. Some suggestions are fried chicken, cold sandwiches, fruit, salads and various desserts such as brownies and cookies. It is important to also have a lot of beverages because of the heat. It is essential to make sure that you do not bring food that melts easily because it will cause a mess. Even if you are bringing juice or lemonade it’s important to bring water for everyone as well.
Ward off Pests and Use Sunscreen
Bug spray is very important when it comes to a picnic. You should use bug spray and bring things to cover your food. You should also bring garbage bags to throw away your food when you finish eating. It is also important to bring sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun. The minimum recommended SPF rating is 30 when you are planning on spending time outdoors. However, I personally use 50+ because I am very fair, it can’t hurt!
