What’s one way to avoid weather interruptions for your picnic? Bring it inside. That’s right — try to create a picnic experience in your home. We’ve all had to get a bit more creative these days. Find your picnic basket, favorite cutlery, snacks, and more. Of course, you must have a blanket. Dr. Naghmeh Lilly Khavari of the Carrollton Foot Center sees the value of sharing a meal with your family, so try a picnic with a twist.
Plan the menu
When you’re planning your picnic, spend some time creating a menu. Be intentional about this picnic. If your family wants to get involved, invite them to offer some suggestions. They can even help to prepare the dishes. Keep healthy items on the menu, but also feel free to bring out some of your other favorite treats.
Find an activity
Whether it’s an indoor scavenger hunt or a game of Scrabble, select an activity. You can either do your activity while eating or after you’ve taken your last bite. Since you’re indoors, find the best ways to maximize your space. If your activity requires extra movement, be sure to move items in advance. This helps to prevent any bumps or bruises.
Keep it simple
A lot is going on these days. Don’t let this picnic become a stressor. If you end up ordering a pizza, enjoy your time. If you prefer to cook a meal, that’s fine, too. Consider this as an opportunity to try something new while spending quality time with your loved ones. It doesn’t have to be perfect. Just be open to trying something new.
