Indoor Picnic Fun

Today was a murky, horrible, grim day. My plans of Botanical Garden fun went by the wayside so we decided to stay in and have a play. For lunch I said we could have an indoor picnic. 

Literally just a picnic. But indoors. Erin was beside herself like I said we were going to the Ritz. We were just eating dinner, but on the floor!  We had lots of fun and it wasted an hour (as full days in the house with two seem like an actual week) which was great. In fact I may start eating food on the floor for all meals. As with the baby that's where most of it ends up anyways. 

Hey Princesses. Fancy a mini cheddar?

Eating on the floor? We are mad!

  2. My kids adore doing this, too - it's funny how just calling it something different and eating on the floor can be so exciting!

  6. What a brilliant idea to have an indoor picnic. You could have a whole series of them at the moment! We have pretend picnics and tea parties a fair bit but not with actual food. Inspired! Thanks for sharing #whatsthestory

    1. Anything that is free in my books is the dreams! Sigh I wish I had another little girl. The boy just destroys the party and tries to eat the princesses. I find boys to be a bit crackers xxx
