After spending time working on your tan down of the beach or building a sand castle you’re going to work up quite the appetite. The same can be said for the rest of your family. Having fun on the beach is also about having a great picnic. Here are some beach picnic hacks that will totally change the way you have fun in the sun.
Keeping It Cool
There are a lot of ways you can keep your drinks in the cooler cold without taking up a lot of space. The night before freeze some bottled water. They can act as additional ice packs. As the day goes on, they’ll melt and be ready to drink. You can do the same with sodas but don’t leave them in the freezer too long or you’ll have a huge mess to clean up. If a water balloon battle will be on the agenda, freeze the balloons first and use them as additional ice packs.
Roll down a potato chip bag’s top while pushing up the bag from the bottom and you’ve created the perfect snack bowl. For your sandwiches, wrap them in wax paper or foil. Plastic baggies contribute to making a sandwich get all soggy. Speaking of avoiding soggy sandwiches, it is better to opt for a hard roll of baguette.
Use cupcake liners over your soda cans with a hole for a straw. Why? Keeps the flies and bees away. Use straws to pack up spices. Tape one end. Fill. Tape the other end. Instant spice container. Just make sure you label them to know what is what.
Use Mason Jars to create salads. Put dressing on the bottom, and then layer in the salad goodies. When it’s time to serve, it can be poured onto a plate or eaten right out of the jar. Once that Mason jar is empty, you can use it to amplify your iPhone music. Place the phone inside and hit play. Empty egg cartons make crush proof transports for things like fruit and deviled eggs.
