Food seems to taste better when eaten outdoors, so why not surprise the family with a picnic?
(NAPSA) - Spring has sprung and the cold, dark days of winter are drawing to a close. How are you celebrating this glorious season?
A great way to share in the celebration with your friends and family is a good old-fashioned picnic. Picnics are an easy, informal way to get outside, enjoy the weather and have a great meal. Here are some guidelines from Tupperware on pulling together a seamless and fun picnic:
Pick the Perfect Place - Picking a place doesn't have to be a pain. Take a trip to your neighborhood park and let the kids play on the swings while you set up the meal. If you have more of an itch to get away for a while, make it a day trip! Travel to your state park, reserve or beach. If you're planning something more impromptu, try your backyard. Set up a blanket on your lawn and feast away.
Pack Everyone's Favorites - Get the kids involved. Have everyone make his or her own sandwich and pack each one individually. Tupperware has a variety of sandwich keepers perfect for any sized sandwich. The Tupperware Round Sandwich Keeper is perfect for rolls and English muffins and the Rectangular Sandwich Keeper is great for hero and sub sandwiches. Label the containers with each child's name and make setting up lunch a breeze.
Any Time of Day Will Do - Don't wait for a beautiful Saturday afternoon! Surprise the family with a picnic dinner on a weekday evening. Pack a small grill and barbecue your surprise meal. Marinate meats and vegetables all day in the Tupperware Season-Serve Container, so the food is ready to go when you are. Don't forget to bring along some of that extra marinade! Store it in the Tuppe2ware Quick Shake Container to make everything taste extra delicious.
Keep Moving! - Exert some of that natural energy the season brings. Remember to pack toys and games to keep the whole family moving. Starting a game of kickball, wiffleball or tossing around a frisbee will have everyone working up their appetites.
