Most summer weekends we would be loading up the car on the weekends to go on a mini adventures and picnics. But that's not the case this summer, and instead, we're staying at home for our summer fun. We're lucky to have a great yard with lots of things to do, and of course, we can count on our neighborhood Safeway for essential summer picnic snacks. Whether you are enjoying time together at home, or somewhere else, be sure to check out the exclusive Signature SELECT snacking and picnic items available at Safeway. My kids love that they can get all of their favorite snacks delivered too.
How to have a picnic at home
Move the fun outside! Whether it's a board game, watching a movie or playing cards, take the activity outdoors. Let's face it, the change of scenery is nice and you get fresh air too. Grab your picnic blanket, some snacks and move things to the yard. Don't have a yard? Your living room totally counts. Just a change in routine is what makes an at home picnic special.
What to eat for your at home snack picnic
Safeway has SO many Signature SELECT snacking and picnic items to choose from. From chips and dips, to snack mixes, cookies and ice cream, there is something for everyone. We love having an assortment of them in our pantry because you never know when the mood will strike for a picnic In fact, we've had several this week!
Here are just some of our favorite Signature SELECT snacking and picnic items.
Soleil Water Sparkling Water - there are so many wonderful flavors. There's no added sugars, so I keep them around the house for a fizzy treat.
Chili Crunch Sweet & Salty Mix and Cranberry Cashew Almond Trail Mix - What's not to love about snack mixes? Deliciousness in every handful.
Peanut Butter Filled Pretzels - I confess I eat these and pretend they are healthy because they have peanut butter in them.
Tuxedos Double Filled Chocolate Cookies - I highly recommend these served with ice cream.
Premium Mint Moosetracks - it is NEVER a proper picnic anywhere without ice cream. Moosetracks happens to be my favorite.
Barrel Party Mix - this fun mix has something for everyone. Literally.
Tortilla Chips, Salsas and Dips - There are so many delicious chip and salsa options in the Signature SELECT line at Safeway.
I'll let you in on a secret, the best part of having a picnic at home is if you forget anything, you can just run inside to get it. Not that that ever happens to us. Ever. I've never run back inside for napkins or bowls. 🙂
