Planning a picnic with the children and want to make sure it’s a memorable event for everyone to enjoy? If so, there are some fun picnic activities worth trying. These activities will keep the children entertained while allowing each person to make some great memories with one another.
Water Balloon Tag
If you’re planning to have a picnic with the children when the weather outside is quite warm, you can easily beat the heat by playing a few rounds of water balloon tag. Simply purchase dozens of small balloons, fill them up with water, and pack them in a cooler for the picnic. When you’re ready to play water balloon tag with the children, make sure the person who is it has several balloons in his or her hands as he or she runs around aiming the balloons at everyone else. The first person to get by a water balloon is the next person who is it.
It’s a simple version of tag that is fun for both children and adults. Nothing feels as good as getting wet with some cold water on a hot day after you’ve been sitting outside or even running around for quite some time. It’s the perfect way to cool down.
If you have some darts, balloons, and poster board, you can easily play a game of balloon darts while out on a picnic with your family. Blow the balloons up and tape them to the poster board. Tape the poster board onto one of the different trees at the park and then carefully start throwing the darts. If you want to make the game of darts even more exciting for the children, you could always add a few pieces of candy inside of some of the balloons because then it gives them something more to look forward to when they’re trying to pop one of the balloons.
Fun With Bubbles
Purchase several different types of bubble wands and make your own bubble solution. You can easily make your own solution by combining three cups of water, two cups of dish detergent, and four tablespoons of glycerin. Place the bubble solution into a large container with a lid and bring it to the picnic with you. Let the children blow bubbles, chase the bubbles, and even pop them while simply having a good time out in the sun with one another.
Game of Frisbee
Don’t forget about playing a good game of frisbee. Frisbees are a cheap and reliable source of entertainment for both children and adults. You can spend hours throwing it back and forth, chasing it around the park with the kids.
If you want to participate in some fun picnic activities, these are quite a few options for you to consider. The best thing about these different activities is that they won’t cost you a ton of money and they’ll keep you and your children entertained for quite some time while you’re all hanging outdoors together and enjoying the beautiful weather.
