Sun’s out, hampers are ready! That’s right, it’s time to celebrate Picnic month with these top tips.

Location, location, location

The great thing about a picnic is that you can have one, well, just about anywhere. We’re talking putting a blanket down in the garden (or living room if the weather plays up), a park or a beach. It means you can enjoy this anytime everywhere!

Pack in the food

As we all know, the thing that makes the picnic, is the food. Got little ones? They’ll love finger foods like cocktail sausages, rolls and sliced veggies, while the grown-ups can enjoy posher sandwiches like smoked salmon and cream cheese, coronation chicken and more. Why not treat yourself to sweet treats and goodies, which you can pick up at shops like One Below or Savers.  Just don’t forget the cool box and ice packs that are available at Argos, to keep it all fresh until you reach your destination!

Keep them busy

We all love a picnic, but let’s be honest, little ones won’t be so happy about sitting on a blanket for hours – especially after the food’s disappeared! Make sure they stay occupied. Pitch up next to a play area in a park where they can have some fun on the swings or bring a range of fun outdoor toys with you. Pop into The Works to view their huge range of toys and games including balls, frisbees, water guns, and much more!

We hope you have an incredible summer filled with delicious dishes! If you need any further inspiration, check out BBC Good Food’s picnic recipes!
