A family picnic we've been challenged to make,
Let's plan our menu of things to take,
That will taste good with all kinds of spread!
Now for something special, that tastes really nice,
Our own-invented idea for these scotch-egg dice!
My children love a picnic with a teddy bear theme,
So let's add bear cookies and teddy bear cheese.
Let's pick a location. What's the venue to be?
Our local park, village green or even the beach?
These are perfect picnic places that we like a lot,
But today we've found a closer-to-home picnic spot.
Out into the garden, a floor of grass green,
Picnic basket bulging, guests are all keen.
The basket is opened and little eyes light up,
Soon empty tummies will be filled-up.
With bellies full, we lie in the sun,
Looking at sky, whilst planning more fun.
Picnics are about food and family-fun too,
So here are some other picnic-time things we do...
Flying kites on a windy breeze,
Spotting bugs and climbing trees,
Sometimes a simple garden game,
Like boules or quoits or even croquet.
We hope we've given you some picnic ideas for inspiration,
For next time you're at your fave picnic location.
