It's Picnic Time!

As summer starts winding down, you may find yourself trying to fit as many outdoor activities into your schedule as possible. We’re all getting a bit creative with at-home activities -- crafts, movies, and blanket forts are at an all-time high for those with young kids -- and even if you can’t venture farther than the backyard, we have some easy ideas to keep the fun times rolling.

Picnics are a great weekend activity for kids, especially because there are ways to involve them in every step of the process. Start by having your child pick out their favorite outdoor blanket and get set up in the backyard location of their choice. Grabbing a pack of cards, a family board game, or a favorite toy for after lunch can help extend the time spent outside for even more fun in the sun. 

When it comes to the most important part of the picnic (the lunch!), kids can once again participate in prep. Cut up some veggies to snack on, scoop a favorite dip or salsa, and get some simple sandwiches bagged up. If you’re feeling especially ambitious, making homemade cookies or a sweet treat creates both a sugary finish and yet another activity that can be done together. 

But what’s a picnic without the perfect drink to sip on in the sunshine? For those seriously steamy afternoons, a sparkling water offers the lightest, most refreshing companion for salty snacks. Iced teas are also a classic picnic staple -- from sweet Texas Honey to Unsweet Lemon Tea and all the flavors in between, we’ve got you covered with our favorite Sweet Leaf options

We’re working hard to bring the best of what nature has to offer right to your doorstep -- don’t forget that you can order your favorite Purity Organic & Sweet Leaf Tea flavors and stay stocked all summer long. Grab your basket and start enjoying that sunshine 💚
