Planning a picnic is a great project for your kids, however, if the weather keeps you inside it shouldn’t stop you from having a feast.
Whether dressing your kids in warm clothes and letting them have a picnic in the snow or spreading out a cute bed linen in front of the fireplace, changing things up by serving lunch outside the kitchen is always a lot of fun.
The first step to getting the kids aboard is by letting them help plan the menu, pick the spot, fill the basket with plates, cutlery, cups and napkins. The next step is getting them involved in the process of making the food by packing a lunch that is colourful, inviting and full of variety. Remember that just like us, kids eat with their eyes first, so lots of yummy foods cut in funny shapes with a cookie cutter, packed in cool lunch boxes are a great way to engage the little eaters in the process.
Get your little one involved in the process of cutting and getting food ready for the picnic basket.
Camping out while embracing the Danish concept of "hygge"
Loosely translated to coziness, "hygge" is about creating a warm and comfortable atmosphere. Feeling relaxed, whether you are alone or with family and friends and while facing any kind of weather. Lighting up the fireplace and letting the kids roast their apples while hanging out in a small picnic-like area, definitely falls under the category of "hygge".
Since keeping the children offline for a while can be challenging, chances are that if you provide them with other fun activities, they’ll forget everything else and create their own little fairytale world…
Warm roasted apples ready to be sprinkled with cinnamon sugar served up on Done by Deer compartments plates perfect for separating the picnic snacks.

Campfire baked apples
for 2 snack hungry kids
2 wooden sticks
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Wash the apples and put them on the sticks. Roast them over the campfire.
Turn them whilst enjoying the cozy heat from the fire.
It depends on the apples how long they need to roast, but when juice begins to drip from them they should be done.
Carefully remove the apples from the sticks and place them on a plate or in a bowl.
Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and enjoy...
