Picnics are a great excuse to spend time outdoors, even if just in your backyard.
Why do it?
- Having kai together is a familiar activity for the child.
- All the kōrero that takes place at a picnic will help strengthen language skills.
- This could be a time to practise using manners like ‘please’, ‘kia ora’ ‘thank you’ and ‘excuse me’.
- Strengthen language by expanding vocabulary, asking and answering questions, and sharing and discussing ideas.
