Don’t you just love picnics? I enjoy going outside, enjoying nature and enjoying a meal. It’s a simple way to spend the afternoon with family and friends, enjoying each other’s company with food and sunshine. Children like being outside too but it is fun to extend the enjoyment with a simple activity like this Printable Picnic Scavenger Hunt For Kids.
