There are only a few activities in the world that are as exciting as planning a picnic with a large group.
When that large group happens to be your family, the excitement is at the very least, twofold. Understandably, you then also want to make sure that your family picnic turns out to be nothing but amazing.
To ensure that you achieve this goal without facing the wrath of a disgruntled family member, here are a few tips that would help you plan a great family picnic.
Start With Transportation Arrangements
Instead of relying on multiple people to drive everyone from point A to point B in separate cars, have something which transports all of you at once.
And what better way to ensure this than to arrange party busses which bring the ultimate optimization in fun and comfort?
By booking a party bus, you get a collective ticket to a ride that’s full of joy, laughter and bonding opportunities for your whole group. This way, everyone is not only traveling together but is also going to have a great time with special seating and eating arrangements. It can be your own little party venue until you reach the actual picnic spot.
Make Sure the Destination is Liked by Everyone
You have to make sure that your picnic venue is well liked by everyone in your group. If a significant amount of your family members seem unhappy with your choice, then it can sour the mood for everyone.
Placing this in mind, put some options in front of your family so they could collectively vote on the venue. If there are any concerns, then discuss them openly so you could resolve them.
By having everyone involved in the decision making process, you can ensure that all of your family has a great time at the picnic.
Don’t Forget the Food
When it comes to food, make sure that you keep everyone’s preferences, dislikes and most importantly, allergies into account. Make a list of all the people accompanying you on the picnic and list down these details for each of them.
Then, you can use this list to make sure that you don’t serve food that upsets anyone or which seems to flare up their allergies.
If possible, arrange for personalized meal boxes for everyone so they can snack on the way. If your venue doesn’t have restaurants or food stalls, then repeat the personalized box practice when you reach the actual picnic to keep everyone fed and happy.
Pick Some Games to Enjoy on the Way
The journey is just as important as the destination with the food and venue. That is why it is imperative for you to plan some activities for when you and your family are on their way to the event.
Pick up some popular road trip games such as 20 Questions, I Spy, and Roll Call. All of these games welcome and foster group participation, which would encourage all of your family members to loosen up a little and enjoy these fun games.
This would bring much needed laughter to your trip and would also keep the sense of joy running through your family picnic.
These are just a few of the tips to make sure that you and your entire family have a great overall experience.
