Do you want to have a campout with your family like the one in Mum! Dad!! Where are You? Even if you haven’t been camping before, it’s easy to plan a family trip in nature. If you don’t want to stay overnight, you can also plan a family picnic.
For a family picnic, some of the places in this post (link to 5 places to enjoy nature) might be good. If you’re going to a place with a picnic area, there may already be picnic tables for you to use. If there aren’t picnic tables, bring a picnic blanket to put on the ground. Use this list to pack your picnic basket.
- Picnic blanket
- Paper plates and cups (or real ones to be more environmentally friendly; we recommend plastic, not glass!)
- A cooler or ice packs to keep food fresh
- Your favourite sandwiches
- Fruit that isn’t messy, like apples
- Your favourite desserts
- Mosquito repellent spray
- Outdoor toys and games
An overnight campout takes a bit more planning. This is a great activity to do on a long weekend. A tent and sleeping bags are affordable, or if you’re not sure you want to make camping a regular activity, many campgrounds also offer tent rental.
