I love to take a daycation into the city. We walk the monuments and history of where JFK was assassinated. I used to do this all the time with a friend of mine. Lately, I’ve been thinking this would be a blast with the teens to do. Here is how I pack a lunch for a daycation, lunch for the daughter, or just movie time at home. Daycation Picnic Snacks are wonderful and relieve you from finding a restaurant to eat at. The affordability is also pleasant.
Stop by Walmart, your “SNACKATION” destination, to stock up on go-to summer snack solutions! You know I did. I picked up some Smucker’s sandwiches because I just love uncrustables. I am NOT a fan of sandwich bread crust. It’s different with other bread but with sandwich bread I am not game. I also love these Jif to go’s. They pack easily and are tasty with a variety of snacks. I love to dip oranges in my peanut butter. It has to be a cara cara orange though!
My daughter is obsessed with Belle so I like to cut her strawberries into rose shapes. This is also a good technique to do when you want them to be a bit sweet. Just cut the strawberries and add a little sugar to the tops.
To keep everything cold I like to take sponges, wet them, and place them in a plastic ziplock. Freeze them overnight and use them in your lunch bag or around a container to keep the contents cold when travel to the spot of your daycation. These are reuseable just as well. Just wet again and place in freezer.
Great places to visit on a Daycation for myself and my daughter are things that have to do with shopping, history, or band. Making a daycation takes very little planning but if you pack a snack like this you’ll be fully set. What would you pack for your Daycation?
