“I don’t know why, but the meals we have on picnics always taste so much nicer than the ones we have indoors.”
– Enid Blyton
Weather permitting, we love our Friday picnics. The kids get finger foods from home. We head out into our custom-designed yard to eat lunch al fresco. It’s a wonderful way to end the week. Spending time outdoors, of course, has its benefits. What we love even more is just watching the kids soak in the sun, in the company of their friends, being comfortable in the natural world. It is one of our key endeavours at Elements Preschool, as an urban nature school, to help children reconnect with nature. A Friday picnic is one of the nicest ways to do that.
If you’re inspired to host a picnic for your kids, or with friends and family this weekend, here are some great resources:
