5 Summer Picnic Hacks

Posted: Jun 21 2019 News

This summer you can soak up the sun while enjoying your favourite foods a little easier. Here are five tips to elevate your family picnics. 
1. Cover drinks with cupcake liners

Cupcake liners. Who knew right? These liners have more to offer than holding delicious baked goods. Cut a hole in the bottom of one and place it on the straw to cover the tops of glasses. This way you can enjoy your drink without worrying about bugs or leaves falling in. 
2. Watermelon pops

Place watermelon on popsicle sticks to avoid sticky fingers, because sticky fingers always lead to sticky...everything else. You’ll thank us later. 
3. Shower curtain blanket

Whether it rained the night before, the morning dew was too generous or one of your kids has a talent for spilling everything, a shower curtain blanket is an easy solution. The water-resistant nature of shower curtains ensures you’ll stay dry during your picnic and makes for easy clean up any mishaps. 
4. Tic Tac spice holders

There’s no reason your picnic should be bland. Load empty Tic Tac holders with salt, pepper or whatever else you need to give your food a flavourful kick. These are easy to transport, easy to reuse and it’s easy to manage how much spice you’re putting on!  
5. Chopped salad in a cup

Putting your salad in a plastic cup with a lid ensures it’s easy to transport (and eat!) Don’t forget to place the fork in the straw hole for easy access!
These are just a few of the simple things you can do to make your summer picnics more convenient and enjoyable. We’d love to hear about other hacks you know of!
Happy Summer!
