Spring is here! And for my mountain family that means picnics. I’m not sure why eating outdoors is more fun than eating indoors but with the warm sun and a place to play, it’s a great way to spend time outside with the tots.
A picnic can be as simple as sitting on the grass, eating a sandwich, but I’ve found that the right gear can make the experience SO much better. This is especially true with a son with food allergies. Since Big E is allergic to wheat, eggs and nuts we always bring our own food. And sometimes that requires good planning and good gear.
This week I have challenged myself to plan the Perfect Picnic. I figure I’ll need a few practice runs so for the next three days I will be eating outdoors and posting about it on instagram, twitter and the Mountain Mom and Tots Facebook Page. I invite you join me. Tag @mountainmomtots in a photo of your perfect picnic so we can share the outdoor dining love.
As part of the Perfect Picnic challenge I will also be reviewing some of our favorite picnic gear and hosting GIVEAWAYS! I contacted all of the companies featured here to request items to review and giveaway. I’ll tell you why in the pages that follow.
What makes a good picnic? Sunny weather. Tasty food. Good company. I can’t help you with the weather or company but perhaps some of the reviews these next three days will help with keeping your food tasty. What will your next outdoor eating adventure be?
This portable floor folds up small so it’s easy to take anywhere. We used it all last fall and have already put it to good use this spring. And now there’s a quilted version that’s included in the giveaway below! Woohoo!

What better way to pack a picnic than to stack your food all together? To-Go Wareis a great eco-conscious brand offering renewable bamboo utensils and food grade stainless steel to promote Zero Waste habits. I was inspired to incorporate more reuseables in my life recently and these To Go Ware Utensils and 2-Tier Stainless Lunch Boxare the perfect way to pack a picnic. Follow them on instagram at @togoware!
