Something that many people do not do much anymore is go on a picnic! And that’s such a shame so I created a picnic checklist to make it easy. Going on a picnic can be a family event, a great time with friends or even a great date with your partner! However, in order to make sure that you have an amazing time at your picnic there are some things that you’ll want to remember including food, drinks, utensils and something fun as well! Nobody regrets having a fun time when they make sure that they are fully prepared. Remember to pack everything up in a nice picnic basket to make it a true picnic.

  • Chicken Wings (you may want BBQ sauce or ketchup with these)
  • Hotdogs with Buns (if bringing these don’t forget condiments such as ketchup, mustard, relish, etc.)
  • Lasagna (Pre-Made)
