At the end of June a blogging friend and mentor of mine, Jill of Enchanted Homeschooling Mom had to put her blog business on the back burner for the next year or more for health reasons. Since she has been unable to keep up her previous blogging pace, I decided that I wanted to do something for her to help. One of the ways I (and you!) can help is by sharing her posts and driving traffic to her site. So I called on the fellow bloggers of the Kids Blogger Network to do a round-up blog hop of Enchanted Homeschooling Mom’s posts!
Are you planning or attending a Not Back-to-School Picnic? Many homeschool groups kick off the new school year with a picnic. Picnics are a fun way to enjoy the great outdoors in the spring, summer and fall. There are always yummy foods to eat, fun games to play and don’t forget, arts and crafts can be done outside too! Here are some ideas to make your picnic fun, educational and yummy!

I have been meaning to make fruit roll-ups for a while. That post on raspberry roll-ups from Enchanted Homeschooling Mom has me inspired to try it sooner rather than later. Our kids would love it!
Hehe…yep, we always do picnics in the fall…though we still call them Back to School, lol! Hope Jill feels better soon! 🙂
You have some great picks here! Jill does a great job of inspiring 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing!
Sam, I am quite literally just balling my eyes out right now, in a good way. I am so touched not only by your generosity and the time, thought, and energy that went into putting this all together but also by your kind heart. Words just cannot express how very grateful I am that you put this together. You made my day! I have never been more thankful than I am today to have such a wonderful friend lifting me up and sending me some love while I battle this health crisis. Ok… I think it I went through half a tissue box just reading your article and writing this comment 🙂
Thanks for being you. You rock!
This would make for one awesome back to school (or NOT back to school!) picnic!

Look at all the fun picnic ideas you found on Enchanted Homeschooling Mom. We have had a not-back-to-school picnic and celebration for many years. I am looking forward to choosing something from this list to use this year. Thanks for all your work on this blog hop – you are a thoughtful and kind person 🙂

Oh I love these ideas. I’ve never really thought of doing crafts at a picnic before but it’s a great idea 🙂
