Planning a fun filled outing with the kids can quickly lead to a rather empty purse.  Entrance fees, food, drinks and the inevitable ice-creams, soon add up to make a family day out a very expensive treat.

I’ve often found the best family days we have shared are the spontaneous picnic outings.  Great fun and without the expensive price tag attached, picnics are a great opportunity to get the kids outside. 

With such poor summer weather so far this year, it’s been difficult to plan ahead for outdoor trips, which is why we love picnics so much.  If the sun comes out, it takes no time at all to quickly pack a little bag full of goodies, grab a picnic blanket and usually a football and head off to the local park. The kids love eating outside and it’s a great way to relax together.

At Maggy Kay we have loads of fab picnic accessories to brighten up your lunch.  Add a little style to your picnic with some of our fabulous Outdoor Living Accessories.   Check out our Pinterest page for some amazing (and easy) ways to make your picnic one of a kind. Why not bring a picnic with you to a day at the zoo or simply head down to your local park? Short on time? Have a fun filled picnic in your back garden with all your favourite treats.

Quick tip!  Given the weather so far this summer it might just be an idea to keep the brolly on standby!
