Backyard Picnic

You can have a picnic in the park with your preschool child, but it might be even better in your own backyard!

Backyard Picnic


  • Blanket
  • Picnic food
  • Outdoor toys


  1. You don't have to trek to the park to have a picnic.
  2. Set up a picnic in your own backyard: Spread out a blanket, set up the goodies, and bring out the balls and other outdoor toys to complete the fun.
  3. In warmer weather, turn on the sprinkler or fill the kiddy pool for some water play.
