Ways to Have the Ultimate Indoor Family Picnic at Home

Apr 24th 2020

Picnics traditionally make us think of cool air and the warmth of the sun, but sometimes the weather won’t cooperate—or maybe the urge to have a picnic comes on a busy weeknight when there’s not enough time to plan things out. So, why not turn the house into the ultimate picnic destination? The kids will love preparing the indoor picnic —choosing the perfect spot to put the blanket as well as the delicious foods to serve is just as much fun as the outdoor picnic. Besides, the added bonus is: no bugs or sunburns to worry about! So here’s how to pull off the ultimate indoor picnic at home for the family.

Prepare the Room

To make cleaning afterwards easier, it would be best to pick a room with floorboards or tiles, and choose a room that is easy to rearrange at any time. The living room, dining area, or even a kid’s play room would be perfect. All you have to do is push most of the furniture to the sides of the room, so there will be a big empty space in the center. Get a number of different blankets or tablecloths and get the kids to help spread them out to cover the floor. It would be wise to use a waterproof picnic rug or a plastic tablecloth to avoid spills on the floor.

Set the Tunes

Music plays a very important role in the atmosphere of the picnic. Think about creating the family’s favorite playlist. Start out by playing a tune that will be perfect to set the mood. Or, to get a real outdoor feel, get some nature sounds cranking or pick a sunny and bright folk song to play on the speakers.

Pick the Perfect Picnic Food

Bring out the picnic basket and keep everyone happy with a combination of snacks, a salad, an effortless but tasty meal, and a sweet dessert. One traditional treat that's a must-try is Denmark’s well-loved traditional butter cookies. Small but sweet, Danisa Butter Cookies are a type of delicate and delicious butter cookies which are perfect for any occasion.

Danisa Butter Cookies is a global brand successfully selling its iconic products in more than 60 countries worldwide. It’s known for its commitment to producing authentic Danish butter cookies from the authentic Danish recipe, making it the world’s favorite butter cookies. The irresistibly buttery and delicious taste come from high-quality butter and other finest ingredients baked to crisp and rich perfection, making it a perfect companion for quality time with the family.

Most of All, It’s All About the Fun!

The indoor picnic doesn’t have to be so boring. Add more fun with a game like Spin the Bottle, or play Jenga with the kids. For a more leisurely and relaxing experience, try to read a book or draw with the whole family.

There’s no limitation to the fun and being indoors is a great idea to relax and forget about everything else!
