Easy Picnic Food Ideas to complete your summer

What are you favorite Summer activities? 

For us, we love to spend a lot of time outside. The only problem is that this year the weather hasn’t really cooperated with us much. 

By now, we would have had multiple water parties, pulled out the inflatable water slide, and even ran through the sprinklers. Plus, they just opened up a new splash pad nearby.

But we’ve had unusually cold temperatures and LOTS of rain that has kept us inside. 

With more thunderstorms on the horizon – we have to do something fun. 

Backyard Fun: Easy Picnic Food Ideas

We found a brief break in the weather to actually get outside. 

So we took this opportunity to get some weeding done, plant our herb garden, and plant some seeds for flowers.

Then, we just soaked up the sun as much as we could before the next storm approached. 

We may not be able to go on big outdoor adventures with the weather forecast as gloomy as it is. But we can still do something fun right in our own backyard. 

So we planned a simple backyard picnic. And this is really easy to do too – which I know all the stressed out parents are loving right about now right? 

Set up a simple table. You can add a tablecloth if you want…but I’m going Extra simple here (who knows when the rain is going to start coming down on us again – and I need less to hurry and carry inside when it does). 

Put out a simple Meat & cheese platter. And set out a Fruit and Dip Platter. Don’t forget the drink station! 

Lastly – for a fun crunch, we like to use RITZ Crisp & Thins in fun bowls. Or you can just leave them in the bag. Whatever works.

They just launched two new flavors, RITZ Crisp & Thins Barbecue and Cheddar varieties

These fun snacks make a perfect addition for road trip snacks and summer adventures, gatherings, and picnics! 

You can find the RITZ Crisp & Thins at Walmart near the other crackers.
