Can’t Stand the Heat? Get into the Indoor Picnic!

Beat the scorching summer heat by bringing the picnic indoors! It’s safe, UV-free, and a creative way to transform your living space into an oasis of joy.

Embracing the Indoor Picnic Trend:

During heatwaves, the safety and well-being of children are of utmost importance. Indoor picnics provide a cool respite from the blistering heat, allowing kids to stay protected from harmful UV rays and avoid the discomfort associated with extreme temperatures. It’s an opportunity to transform your living space into an oasis of fun, adventure, and relaxation.

Transform your indoor picnic space with CF Patchwork Activity Mats. Designed with comfort and practicality in mind, these mats offer vibrant colors that fit any setting perfectly.

Designing The Perfect Indoor Picnic Space:

  • Choose the Right Location: Select a spacious area in your home, like a living room, playroom, or corner of a larger room, that provides ample space for comfortable movement.
  • Create a Picnic Wonderland: Transform your space with colorful string lights and a checkered tablecloth or a woven picnic basket for some extra whimsy. Consider checking out these Green Garland String Lights to take your indoor picnic to the next level!
  • Picnic-Style Dining: Set up a low table or trays to create a picnic-style dining area. Fill a basket with delicious snacks, sandwiches, fruits, and summer drinks. Colorful plates, cups, and utensils can bring a playful touch to your picnic setup.
  • Embrace Nature: Consider adding some potted plants (real or fake!) near your picnic area. Nature sounds or gentle background music playing can really enhance your kiddos’ atmosphere. These Cute Ceramic Animal Planters would make the perfect addition to any indoor picnic space!

Indoor Picnic Activities:

  • DIY Sun Hats: Let kids unleash their creativity by decorating their own sun hats using fabric markers and craft materials. They can personalize them with summer-themed designs, names, or favorite characters. We recommend these Canvas Bucket Hats from our friends at Discount School Supply!
  • Frozen Treasure Hunt: Freeze small toys or objects in ice cubes and place them in the sensory table with water. Kids can use spray bottles, spoons, and droppers to melt the ice and discover hidden treasures, engaging in a thrilling icy excavation. Our Adjustable Sensory Tables would work perfectly for this activity.
  • Hydration Station: Quench their thirst with a hydration station that features refreshing infused water options like cucumber-mint or strawberry-basil. Encourage kids to create their own unique combinations and help them foster a love for creativity and healthy choices.
