Family Picnic Fun
The sun is out, spring breezes are blowing - it's time for a family picnic!
If you're ready to enjoy an afternoon in the great outdoors, pack up a basket or cooler and head out to a nearby park or arboretum. The backyard makes a great spot, too.
Be sure to allow time for exploring and playing. In addition to playing things like tag and Frisbee, try some of these fun activities:
* Scavenger hunt - make a list of things to find, like a bird feather, a pine cone and an acorn.
* I Spy - a great way to help kids learn to observe nature.
* Art al Fresco - use paper plates as canvases. Let the kids draw things they see or create collages out of natural objects.
No picnic would be complete without a fun - and easy - dessert. These bar cookies are a tasty way to wrap up a day of family fun. You can find more picnic-ready treat recipes at TollHouse.comJenny Harper is Consumer Test Kitchen Project Manager for the NestlÈ Test Kitchens and
