Ah kids, always bored and always hungry. No matter how many times you feed them, they still want a snack. Even with a million toys, they are still bored. You see, what they really desire is stimulus. They want something to do, and you to do it with them. It isn’t all about the stuff, it is about the time. One thing my daughter and I love to do is have a perfect backyard picnic complete with snacks, activities, and quality time together. You can easily plan your own perfect backyard picnic with just a few simple steps!

Planning The Perfect Backyard Picnic
The beauty of a backyard picnic, is not only is it fun but it is easy. If you are anything like me, you have no desire to over complicate things. Simple is best. In planning the perfect backyard picnic, simple is something to always keep in mind. From the snacks to activities, you won’t need anything extravagant in order for you and your child(ren) to have the best experience.
What is a picnic without snacks? Even though we are only going into the back yard, the snacks need to be on point. I like to get my daughter involved with the basket packing process in order for it to be more enjoyable for her.
Finger foods and sandwiches are always picnic staples. In our basket this time, we packed some crackers, cheese and pepperoni along with carrots, and my daughter’s favorite Stonyfield® Organic YoKids® yogurt. She loves the taste, and I love that it is GMO free, has no high fructose corn syrup, and has 25-40% less sugar than other brands (YoKids® Pouches formula is still in transition to have lower sugar).
Stonyfield® Organic YoKids® yogurt is also available in many varieties. There are pouches, regular yogurt cups, tubes, and even smoothies. The pouches are perfect for on the go snacking, and fit really well in any picnic basket. Because they are USDA certified organic, you don’t have to worry about what you are feeding your little one, because there will never be any toxic pesticides, hormones, or antibiotics present.

Now that you have your snacks packed, it is time to plan out some perfect backyard picnic activities. One thing my daughter and I love to do is to bring a book and read together. There is something calming and nice about reading outside.
It is also a wonderful time to simply just talk. I feel like too often do we want to load down our kids with activities and things to do that we forget to just slow down and enjoy a good conversation. We like to sit and eat our snacks while talking about anything and everything. Granted she is 4, so most of our conversations revolve around unicorns and preschool, but one day these will make for great memories.
