The New Normal
The global pandemic has changed the way we live and enjoy our daily activities. One of the things that have been affected is our ability to go out and enjoy a picnic with friends and family. But, that doesn’t mean we can’t have a picnic at home. In fact, at home picnics can be just as fun and enjoyable as outdoor ones. Here are some ideas to get you started.
If you have a small apartment or limited outdoor space, an indoor picnic is a great option. Set up a picnic area in your living room or bedroom. Spread out a blanket on the floor and add some cushions for comfort. Use a picnic basket or a tray to serve food and drinks. You can even create a picnic atmosphere by playing some outdoor sounds, like birds chirping or a babbling brook.
If you have a backyard, take advantage of it and have a picnic outside. Set up a picnic table or spread out a blanket on the grass. Add some decorations, like flowers or balloons, to make it feel special. If you have a grill, you can even cook some burgers or hot dogs to add to the picnic menu. Don’t forget the sunscreen and bug spray!
Add some fun to your picnic by choosing a theme. You can have a beach-themed picnic with seafood and fruity drinks. Or, have a movie-themed picnic with popcorn and candy. You can even have a picnic inspired by your favorite country, with food and decorations that represent that culture.
If you’re feeling crafty, create some DIY projects to add to your picnic. Make your own picnic basket or tray, or create some fun games to play during the picnic. You can even make your own picnic blanket by sewing together some fabric scraps.
No picnic is complete without food. Here are some menu ideas for your at home picnic: – Sandwiches: Choose your favorite bread and fillings, like turkey and cheese or peanut butter and jelly. – Fruit salad: Mix together your favorite fruits, like strawberries, blueberries, and grapes. – Cheese and crackers: Choose a variety of cheeses and crackers to create a cheese board. – Veggie platter: Cut up some vegetables, like carrots, celery, and bell peppers, and serve with dip. – Lemonade: Make your own lemonade by mixing lemon juice, sugar, and water.
Having an at home picnic is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and spend time with friends and family. With these ideas, you can create a fun and memorable picnic without leaving your home. So, grab a blanket and some food, and enjoy a picnic in your own backyard or living room.
