Enjoy picnics come rain or shine!

We’re well and truly into picnic season now, and I hope you’ve got some fab picnics coming up! Let’s hope the weather is on our side, and we’re not faced with too many rainy days this summer. I remember inside picnics when I was little, my mum would set a blanket out on the living room floor, and we’d have lots of various snacks in little wicker baskets! It was just as much fun as an outside picnic, however we weren’t allowed to play with the frisbee for some reason!

I’m sure you’d all agree that an outside picnic is far more exciting than an inside one (frisbee or no frisbee), but in case we do have to dodge the showers this summer, have a look at our New Sprouts Picnic Set. The set includes everything needed to have a great inside picnic, including squirting ketchup and mustard bottles (my favourite bit!) and slices of watermelon.

As our New Sprouts range is specially designed for little hands, this Picnic Set is great for children from just 2 years old. View our entire New Sprout range. Squirt is almost 4 now, but is a massive fan of the New Sprouts range, particularly the chunky, whimsical play food sets.

Are you a Special Needs Practitioner? Or a parent of a child with additional needs? The Picnic Set, along with many other products in the New Sprouts range have many surprising special needs applications and can be used to support a diverse range of additional needs. They’re great for supporting fine motor skill development, and speech & language development when used as a visual prompt.  On our website we have a whole section dedicated to supporting Special Educational Needs.
