There’s nothing as wonderful as good old family fun. For many, family bonding usually consists of going to malls, checking out good restos in the Metro and maybe catching a show or movie. However, doing this weekend after weekend can get boring, and not to mention expensive!! So for a change, why not have simple family fun with a picnic?
Going on picnics is great because it encourages outdoor activities and interaction for the whole family. It is inexpensive and it takes little to no preparation. It also allows families a venue to really bond and enjoy nature, and creates memories that children will cherish for the rest of their lives.
Here are 9 picnic spots you can try out:
1. Your backyard or garden
Especially when you want an inexpensive activity to spice up a boring day, lay a blanket or banig in the garden and enjoy an impromptu picnic with your kids. Cook your favorite inihaw together or just take out the meal you have prepared at home outdoors. Play with bubbles or enjoy a board game with the kids. Simple pleasures such as these make staying at home much more enjoyable.
2. Your village park
Make use of the facilities close to you. If a village park is available, use this for picnics as well. Ride bikes instead of taking the car to get there and enjoy the playground, pool or park greens with your family.
