Offer More Than a Picnic.
Simple additions to an ordinary picnic can make it a much more memorable and camaraderie building experience. Whether you’re at a park, parking lot or venue, Scavenger Hunts can be tailored to any location and allow guests to participate on their own time or within a structured timeframe. Interactive stations such as rock climbing, obstacle courses, a giant game of inflatable twister and classic sports games such as a baseball game, flag football or soccer match are great for active groups. Organized activities such as traditional sack races, two-legged race, hula hoop contests, water balloon toss and more, touch on the nostalgic.
Family Friendly Entertainment.
The options are limitless! Face painters, balloon artists and caricature artists are the most commonly requested child entertainers, but consider characters to mirror the event theme. Sports athletes in full uniform, mermaids, circus performers and olympians are great for photo opportunities. Maybe your event is at an sporting complex? Have one of the city’s professional team’s sports mascots show up at your event for an hour or two.
Another great option is to have a petting zoo and pony rides or bring in a non-profit such as Birds of Prey that can talk about their organization, rehabilitation efforts and will have a demonstration with actual raptors that are part of the program.
