GO have some fun today. Start off in the kitchen this morning, or another morning, but end up outside somewhere having a fun teddy bear picnic. Or a super hero, action figure picnic, we’re not going picky about it. Just have fun.
Kids in the Kitchen – Teddy Bear Picnic
*This post contains affiliate links, see my disclosure policy for more information.*
The point of this idea, was to have fun with your kids, and what you are making. Hop into the kitchen and make something simple, as simple as a couple peanut butter and jam sandwiches. There is very little skill needed to make a sandwich after all.
Some of our favorite picnic foods are:
- squares or brownies
- rice krispie treats
- hot dogs
These are all easily carried out to the backyard, or to a picnic park without much trouble. These are also great for making with your kids, or having your children make themselves. My kids love to make their own sandwiches and do so much days for lunch.
Add an extra element of fun:
use teddy bear shaped cookie cutters to cut your sandwiches, cookies, or brownies
have a bowl of Teddy Grahams, and don’t forget some Gummy Bears!
