Evie Discovers Picnics

Evie's most recent discovery is picnics!

She knows that they seem really simple and ordinary, but how often do you have them? Evie and her mom get tired of eating sandwiches for lunch...but they magically taste better outside on a blanket!!
Evie loves being outside, even if there isn't a playground. Sometimes we take lots of books with us so we can all have some quiet reading time...or sports balls to throw and kick around...or you can bring bubbles and sidewalk chalk (these can be purchased at a dollar store).

There are so many things you can do on a picnic! Don't feel like you have to stay out there forever - this probably won't make you want to go as often. Evie likes to take her lunch to a neighborhood park for about an hour. It's a great reason to get out of the house, and of course, a free adventure!

Have fun!!


  1. Great idea Evie! With the weather being so nice these days, picnic's are a great way to get out of the house and do something fun! I like the bubbles idea too, Bekah would enjoy those for sure : ).
