Have you ever been on a picnic? The chances are very high that you have, as most people have been on picnics at some stage in their lives. The problem is that now we are coming into winter, picnics are far less common, and people are doing all they can to try and find ways to have fun, and on a budget if possible. Instead of going out to large parks or beautiful landscape areas, they have to figure out what fun they can have inside, that still enables everybody to get involved.
Board games are not always easy with small children, but have you considered bringing that picnic experience inside? If you’ve ever sat on the sofa in front of your favourite TV show, you’ll know how much fun it could be to curl up and watch something while you eat some delicious food. Instead of that, why not create a picnic experience right on your living room floor? Here are all of the reasons that you should do exactly that.
- You are inside. Winter is here and if there is one thing that you are guaranteed to get with a picnic, it’s usually fresh air. However, picnics are always nicer to have when the weather is beautiful and you can roll out the rug with all of your favourite nibbles outside. When you are having an indoor picnic, you can throw the pillows down, everybody can get into their pyjamas, and you can still have all of the delicious nibbles – the difference is that you’re warm.
- You don’t have to wait for a table. When you’re having a picnic, no one is waiting to get to the table for their favourite meal. Everybody is collecting their favourite dish from the refrigerator or bringing it over to have fun, and everyone just takes a seat in a special space. You don’t have to worry about there not being enough chairs, you don’t have to worry about flagging down waiters to serve you, and you don’t have to worry about anything. Your picnic and start and end when you are ready.
- There’s no wait for your food. If you’re having a picnic with your friends, everybody can bring a dish to settle down on the rug and start eating and serving each other there and then. It’s an instant way to eat without waiting for food to have to cook, or waiting for anyone to turn up. It’s such a good way to also save some money.
- You can choose what you want to eat. The beauty of the picnic is the freedom to choose. You can all decide on a specific cuisine or type of dish, and you can all get together and cook or prepare the food that you really enjoy. There’s no need to worry about who doesn’t like what type of food – you can choose what type of food that you like. If nobody else likes that dish – well it’s all for you.
