National Picnic month is when we celebrate the love of being outside and enjoying each other’s company by having a nice relaxing picnic. It’s a time to celebrate the open air, nature, and all it has to offer us.

In contemporary usage, a picnic can be defined simply as a pleasure excursion at which a meal is eaten outdoors, ideally taking place in a beautiful landscape. Picnics are often family-oriented but can also be an intimate occasion between two people, or large get-togethers like company and church picnics.

Here are a few recommendations for you to host a picnic for all of your employees:

Organize outdoors games and event for employees to play.

Popular games include:

  • Horseshoes
  • Ring Toss
  • Waterballon fights
  • Toss the Egg

 

Make it a potluck picnic where employees bring a dish native to their home country.

Popular American dishes include:

  • Hot dogs
  • Hamburgers
  • Fried chicken
  • Watermelon
  • Potato salad
  • Cheese platters
  • Sandwiches

Make it a movie night, rent a big screen and host an outdoor movie night picnic.

Turn your picnic into a volunteer event. Contact your local park and recs dept. to organize a “clean up the park” day. Follow that up with a picnic to reward your employees who joined in on the work.
