Did you know tomorrow is International Picnic Day? Me neither. I love looking up things like that.
Nothing’s better than a picnic. My family and I love picnics and we start going as soon as we can and for as long as we can. We have a few picnic spots in the city and a few outside.
We usually ride our bikes with a wicker basketful of goodies and a picnic blanket. Preparations are part of the fun, and the best part is getting there. I usually take a book as I can’t imagine a successful picnic that doesn’t include laying on the grass and reading, if only for a little while.
Over the years, we’ve acquired some accoutrements we deemed necessary; in addition to the basket and blanket, we have bamboo cutlery and plates, various containers and Thermoses. Can you tell we take picnicking very seriously?
Writing Prompt: Write a story or poem that somehow includes a picnic. Maybe the characters are getting ready for a picnic, maybe they’ve just returned, maybe something happens at a picnic. See where this prompt takes you.
Post your story/poem or link in the comments by June 29 to be included in the round up.
