Indoor Picnic Ideas


Don’t despair! We have more fun stuff to do! Fun indoor picnic ideas to get around every ‘out of the blue’ challenge!

Everyone’s been looking forward to a fun picnic and you’re all packed and ready to go… suddenly the weather changes drastically. Picnic plans out the window? No way!

It is fun to watch the weather do its thing!

  • So first, find a big enough room with big windows and clear the curtains out of the way so that you can see everything outside, you want only the glass between you and what’s going on outside!
  • Next clear the furniture out of the way, especially those in the center and those blocking the view through the windows (only for a while mom).
  • Next, bring in the big and small loose pillows, scatter cushions, loose blankets or duvets.
  • Now put on some relaxing background music, it you have meditation music with nature sounds like birds, waterfalls or wallowing streams, those are great to set the mood for an indoors picnic or if you simply love Rock, that’s even more festive!
  • Get the picnic basket out and start to eat! Throw the sausages in a frying pan and the steaks and kebabs on an indoor kitchen grill if you have to.
  • Lie back into the pillows and relax while you watch the weather outside or tell a few jokes.
  • Try these indoor picnic ideas, they are much better than sulking about the weather!
