Picnic Baskets

We love going on picnics. Everyone gets to play and have fun or just relax. It's also a great way to bond with your kids and make memories that last a life time. I love them. We like to be ready to go on the spur of the moment.

Here's what we have ready to go at all times.

In a crate with flip lids (you could use any storage bin):

1 single burner stove (screws on top of a propane bottle- use a chubby bottle, they are more secure)

1 can of propane

1 box of matches

1 tea kettle

1 coffee pot

6 coffee filters

1 small container of evaporated cane juice

1 box of instant cocoa

1 bread knife

1 serving spoon

1 pkg. of paper cups

1 pkg. of plastic flatware

1 pkg. of napkins

1 pkg. of paper plates

6 pk. of bottled water

1 sm. jar of pepperoncini's

1 sleeve of crackers

1 bag of chips or snack mix

1 can of nuts

1 pkg. of cookies

1 bottle of sunscreen

1 can of bug repellant

1 pkg. of wipes

1 bottle of hand sanitizer

1 cribbage board

1 deck of cards

1 note book

1 pen

1 Frisbee

1 container for catching snakes and lizards or other critter

Then in a small ice chest we put in our cold food and ground coffee beans.

We bring a jug of iced tea and a jug of water (for making coffee and cocoa). It may also come in handy for the car’s radiator- you never know!
