Choose where you'll picnic this summer with this awesome guide!

09.06.15 

If you’re longing to get out and enjoy the sunshine before the summer holidays, there’s no better excuse than National Picnic Week!

Here at Poundworld Plus we have all your picnic essentials, including hampers, coolers, picnic blankets and much more!

Once you’ve got everything you need and have bought all your favourite food all that’s left to do is decide where you’re going! The kind of day you’ll have depends on the type of location you choose as the setting for your picnic – so it’s good to have a think about what you want from the day. We’ve put together a simple guide to help you decide…


The garden...

If you’re lucky enough to have a garden with a lawn, it can be a great way of having a day out in the comfort of your own home. It’s a fab idea for families with young children who find going on days out a bit stressful. You’ll have everything you need right there, so if you’ve forgotten anything you can just pop back into the house– and the best bit is the kids will find picnicking in the garden just as incredibly exciting as going out!

The beach...

The seaside can be a lovely place to spend the day and set up your lovingly prepared picnic. The weather can be a little more temperamental than further inland but it can be a risk worth taking if you keep an eye on the weather reports beforehand. There’s more prep involved in a beach picnic because kids need buckets and spades, towels, swimwear and all kinds of other seaside essentials. On a hot summer’s day all this organising is worth it as you and your family can play games, splash in the sea to cool off and eat your lunch wrapped in nice warm towels – just be careful not to get sand in your sandwiches!

The park...

The park is a popular choice with lots of families so it’s bound to be a less relaxing option than the others. However, it does mean the children will have plenty of other kids to play with and there’s the added bonus of play parks and football fields – so the entertainment is pretty much sorted for you!



The countryside...

For a quiet, peaceful and idyllic picnic scene it’s best to head out to the countryside. Whether your relaxing outing is to get away from it all with your family, or treat your other half to a romantic day out, it’s a good idea to know the area before adventuring out in search of a picnic spot. This will avoid you walking for hours looking for the perfect patch of grass! Obviously avoid farmers’ fields and private land, but there are plenty of national parks in beautiful places all over the UK that are just ready and waiting to be enjoyed by eager picnickers this summer!

The floor!

Let’s face it – the great British weather sometimes isn’t all that great. If you’ve had a picnic planned all week, you’ve got everything you need and the kids are climbing the walls with excitement – you can’t just cancel! Putting your blanket on the living room floor (just as you would in a lovely grassy field) is a fantastic solution to rainy day blues. So don’t let the weather ruin your plans – just move your plans indoors!
