I love having picnics at the local park and playground, while enjoying the fresh air and open space. This summer we will definitely picnic often, which means, I will always have our picnic bag at the ready.
If you are like me and enjoy picnics then take a look at my go to list of essentials.There is no need to buy much, you will likely have many of these items in your home. If not, head to your local stores as they are selling summer gear and essentials as you read this ;-)
Here is my list to help remind you of things to pack in your picnic tote for a little family picnic with toddlers.
