It's that time of year again! We're spending LOTS of time at the local park up the street. Most park days end up being picnic days too. On top of getting all of the kids sunscreened-up and ready to go and packing everything we might possibly need for a day in the sunshine, it can be a pain to try to throw together a lunch for my kids who eat like packs of wolves.
So, on my last grocery shopping trip, I grabbed a bunch of picnic lunch stuff that was on sale and made up several "Picnic Packs." Now, all I have to do is make some sandwiches and grab some fruit and throw them and some drinks into the cooler with a Picnic Pack. It will save this Mama some precious time! What's in a picnic pack? Chips, teddy grahams, granola bars, napkins, plastic bag for garbage, fruit snacks, etc. Not the healthiest lunch, but I'm tired of my kids always wanting my friends' food and complaining about the leftovers I bring to the park. Since we'll likely only be picnicking a couple of times a week, I'm okay with a less-healthy lunch for the price of convenience!
