First things first you’ve got to plan the perfect picnic food. Inside or out, this is one of the most important elements to a successful picnic. Finger foods such as mini sandwiches, pork pies and cakes are all firm favourites, but why not experiment a bit with fruit skewers or mini pitta pizzas? As you’ll be at home you have the luxury of a kitchen and most important of all a fridge – you wouldn’t get that in a field! Prepare your fantastic feast and set aside for later. Involve the little ones in preparing the foodaccent pillow case baby canvas living room deco, as this way they are more likely to try new foods and experiment with different tastes and textures. Although you are inside, serve the little nibbles on melamine dinnerware for an authentic picnic feel.

Pre-wash and cut a variety of fruits such as apple, melon, grapes and strawberries – place them in a bowl and let the little ones assemble them just the way they like.

What you’ll need:

Children of most ages can assemble these themselves and make them just the way they like. Cut the pittas in half or into circles using a cookie cutter, evenly spread the tomato puree over the base and add toppings, then bake in a preheated oven (180°C / 350°F) for 4-5 minutes. These mini pizzas encourage an interest in cooking but only need a few ingredients.

What you’ll need:

Clear a space in pretty much any room in your house, gather some blankets or beach towels and a few cushions. Lay the blankets or towels on the floor and scatter cushions around the edge, (if you have a small rug this will work just as well as the blankets). Pop on the kids’ favourite tunes and arrange the food and drinks on top of the blankets. Top tip: place the food and drinks on trays just in case of any spillages.

If your wanting to create the picture-perfect indoor picnic don’t forget to add in those Instagramable touches, –; think killer jars, milk bottles and themed dinnerware. Combined with delicious food and cool shakes, snap away and you’ll have an Insta-worthy picture in no time.

If you’re wanting to go all out you could create a super easy pop-up tent indoors, all you’ll need is some string and a blanket or bedding sheet. Fix the string to something sturdy and drape the blanket over, and there you have a makeshift indoor tent. For added fun, play giant wooden toppling tower or giant dominoes for a screen-free afternoon. Pour a glass of something chilled for the adults sit back and relax.
