Fun Summer Picnic Themes for Kids and Adults

Summer picnics with a great theme are an excellent treat for kids and moms alike. After selecting a date and theme for your picnic, plan what food items to include and what types of activities should be a part of the day. Include the kids in the planning of this special day by having them cut out shapes or draw pictures related to the theme. When shopping for the items needed for the picnic, coordinate things such as napkins, plates, utensils, table cover, decorations, and food items to the chosen theme. The kids will have a great time simply preparing for the occasion! Following are a few picnic theme ideas to get you started:

Beach Party Picnic

Make fun surfboard finger sandwiches, fruit in a watermelon bowl, or fish shaped cookies. Younger children can enjoy such games as Hot Pineapple (the classic “Hot Potato” with a pineapple), limbo, bag races, and building sand castles. Older kids will love playing beach volleyball, Frisbee, or badminton.

Camping Party Picnic

Invite a bunch of friends for a day of fun camping activities. Keep the picnic food simple, such as finger sandwiches, hot dogs, cut vegetables, and of course, don’t forget the s’mores! Plan a fun scavenger hunt to start the day. Before eating, take the kids on a short hike and have a contest to find the most original leaf (just make sure they don’t pick poison ivy) or rock. Identify different insects, trees, and plants along the way. At the day’s end, gather around a fire to roast hot dogs and marshmallows. Tell stories, sing songs, and let each child share what they felt was the most exciting part of the picnic. For those who are really adventurous, spend the night under the stars with nature!

Pool Side Picnic Fun

If you have a swimming pool, invite several families over and have a pool side party. The kids can play tag games, have swim contests, and toss a beach ball back and forth. For food, make simple finger foods and decorate them with little colorful umbrellas. You could take the pool picnic one step further and make it a Luau party theme. Provide fresh fruit in pineapples, and everyone could wear Hawaiian leis, grass skirts, or Hawaiian shirts. Decorate straw hats or coconuts for a fun and original pool side party activity. Find some Hawaiian music and have a contest to see who can hula the best.

Zoo Picnic

For young children, up to about age 10, you might consider a zoo picnic. This could be a fun and eventful day with a visit to the zoo and a picnic in the park. After touring the zoo, enjoy a simple lunch and discuss the different animals you saw and what things they like to eat. You could bring along coloring books with pictures of zoo animals or play charades where the kids have to guess which animal is being imitated.

Pirate Picnic Party

A pirate picnic can be a great adventure. Select foods such as tuna fish sandwiches cut in the shape of anchors or fish, salt water taffy, or goldfish crackers. Decorate the picnic table or tablecloth with a big fish net and get an eye patch or pirate hat for each child to wear. Play Pin the Patch on the Pirate and have a fun and mysterious treasure hunt with maps and clues provided to a treasure chest filled with goodies.

Southwestern Picnic Fun

For a fun southwestern theme, decorate the backyard with hay bales and ropes. Have chips and salsa for a snack and let the kids build their own burritos or tacos. Play games such as Corn Hole, Lasso the Bull, and hopscotch.

"We received our baskets in all locations and I must say they have exceeded our expectations. Thanks for the extra time you spent making Administrative Professionals day so special. You have certainly made my choice of gift basket companies look great!"-Casey Albi, Jacksonville FL...more

Impress Your Dad With A Father's Day Gift Basket

Picking out just the right Father's Day gift for your Dad isn’t always an easy task. 
Maybe your dad is the strong silent type who doesn’t ever give any clues about what he wants for Father’s Day, or maybe he just insists that you don’t need to get him anything at all.

When you’re not sure what to buy, a gift basket for Father's Day can be an excellent option. 
Father's Day gift baskets allow you to present your dad with something that is both creatively arranged and filled with things that he loves. There are many benefits of sending a gift basket for dad through the mail versus giving a traditional gift, and here are just a few.

Make it Personal: Why Your Mom Will Love a Mother's Day Gift Basket

What do you usually give your Mom on Mother's Day?
Flowers or candies might seem the obvious choice, but could you think of something more memorable to show the special lady in your life that you care? Even for the Mom who's 'got it all,' a Mother's Day gift basket is the perfect gift for Mother's Day.

The Selfish Act Of Giving, by Laura Tucker

Traditional knowledge tells us the business of gift giving and receiving is built around the old adage, "It's better to give than to receive." As a society of giving people we want to make an acknowledgment to the people in our life of what the relationship means to us, but the act isn't nearly as selfless as it seems. 

At first, thought giving a gift seems like a selfless act, but once you follow all the thoughts involved, it isn't really selfless after all. There is something you are hoping to gain from it, so it can't be completely selfless. You're doing it so that you will feel good about yourself. Seeing that look on the recipient's face, the immediate knowledge that they've been waiting for this gift or are genuinely surprised by it is what we're waiting for. This becomes a gift to ourselves. 

When I shop for a gift for someone, I try to find something that lets them know how I connect to them, a symbol of our relationship. This is someth…
