Break up your mealtime routine this summer with a picnic!
Head to a park, walk right out into your backyard and lay a blanket out on the grass, or have a picnic on the floor inside your house if the weather is bad. Visit one of Canton's parks, or check the Take a Ride or Go For a Hike squares for more ideas of where to picnic.
Keep it simple. Avoiding too much fuss will promote relaxation and give you time to enjoy yourself.
- Let the kids help with preparations
- Play some no sweat games like "duck, duck, goose" or "I spy." Check out the Backyard Fun square for more ideas
- If you are able to picnic outside, take some time to Observe Nature
Snap a Photo to remember your picnic or capture the beauty around you, or for something more involved, make your own picnic blanket.
