Step 7: ACTIVITIES AND ENTERTAINMENT
It’s a picnic, so every one of all ages should have tons to do. This is, of course, our specialty. We look for ways to provide many different “zones of entertainment” for all ages.
Inflatable Games are a huge hit with the toddlers all the way through the college age group. Of course, many adults love to play and have a great time on them as well. We have a huge selection to choose from, so that all age brackets will have a fun and challenging time.
Carnival booths work great and offer a wide variety of exciting and challenging games. Just like at the fair! Prizes add a nice touch, giving all of your guests something to take home with them. Frisbee golf, volleyball, badminton, bocce all, croquet and other outdoor style games can be a very popular segment of your picnic.
For the crowd that does not want to actively participate in the more physical games, nothing beats bingo. You can choose from a simple set-up, or our deluxe bingo set-up that comes complete with a lighted display board and professional ball hopper. Prizes are what make this game so exciting, so make sure to pick some great ones.
Wal-Mart and other stores like it, have a ton of things to choose from that are inexpensive but have a very expensive look to them. These might include camping chairs, sleeping bags, coolers, DVD players, small TV’s, dart boards and pretty much anything else you can imagine.
For that extra spark of “pizzazz”, live entertainers can do the trick. This could range from face painters, clowns, magicians, stilt walkers and caricature artists to a professional DJ or band. They can come in handy if there is a delay in food preparation or a lull between door prizes.
Other activities that can offer a fun time might include a softball game, pony rides, boat rides and tours of the facility if applicable.
Another popular package that many of our clients choose is the classic picnic package. This is a series of old style picnic games like tug-of-war, egg race, water balloon toss, three legged race, centipede skis, and sack races. When we provide these games we also have ribbons and medals for all of the winners.
