- So what is a perpetual picnic and when do you need one?
It is a picnic that lasts all day and you don't need to sit down to eat it! So ideal for trips to theme parks etc. when you don't have time to stop or you are spending 30 minutes plus in a queue for a ride.
- What sort of things are good for a perpetual picnic?
Anything that you can eat holding in your hands without needing a plate and won't melt or make a big mess:
crudities and dip
mini sausage rolls
mini pork pies
mini egg bites (basically anything bite sized from your supermarket!)
pre-segmented mandarins etc.
small non-chocolate biscuits
- what about drinks?
small cartons of juice
bottles of water
any re-sealable soft drinks
flask of tea / coffee
- anything that is no good?
things that melt in your hand
if it needs more than a couple of bites its probably too big
So pack up your cool bags and go out and enjoy days out with the kids. Taking a perpetual picnic saves time and money that you can then use on something more exciting ;-)
