QUOTE: if you have a place where you can go and have a picnic with your family, it doesn't matter if it's a recession or not, you can include that in your quality of life. Jim Fowler
THEORY: An easy way to get everyone together enjoying time in the great outdoors. Don't forget it can be as simple as sandwiches in your own garden. You can learn a lot on a picnic and it is a great family time together.
Collect some food and an old blanket, your family and friends and head for the garden, a local park or a bit further a field to a National Park or beach to enjoy some time together. Don't forget to take a ball.
Blanket, ball, and maybe some food and drinks.
- Make a full-on group cooking morning preparation of yummy food. (See book below to learn a new recipe or two)
- Bar b que - definately male bonding time.
- For preschoolers you could read "The Teddy Bear's Picnic" and take along some of their favourite bears or other stuffed animals to join in the picnic. Of course the Teddy Bears would have to have their own plastic cups or teaset.
