Summertime Picnics

Summertime, kids, and picnics are meant to go together. Having a picnic doesn’t have to be reserved for a day out at the beach or park. Kids love to eat outside, especially if it means they don’t have to stop playing to come inside and get cleaned up. If you are going to have a picnic during an outing, be sure to practice food safety and have icepacks in with the food or cooler. Summertime Picnics
