It’s the purple season again. Yay! Jacarandas! Too bad it’s almost the end of the season so if you haven’t enjoyed a panoramic view of blooming purple trees, now’s your chance to have a picnic with your loved ones. Stumped for picnic ideas? Here’s how to make your picnic with friends and family fun. 

1.Prepare your favorite snacks and meals.

A picnic is the time to recuperate from the demands of modern living. You deserve it so make the most out of it. For a day of smorgasbord, why not prepare sumptuous foods to please everyone’s palate. Nothing beats sharing delicious meals with your favorite people. Before you get too excited, don’t forget to bring your picnic mat. We highly recommend MINISO Australia’s picnic mat

2. Have a themed picnic.

Let those creative juices flow with a themed picnic. Since you’re celebrating the season of Jacarandas, embrace the concept by coming up with a purple picnic party. Bring anything purple ’cause we can’t just get enough of it.

3. Put smartphone’s away.

Throwing a picnic is the best time to have meaningful conversations with your friends and family over a hearty meal. There’s no better way to spend your quality time with your loved ones than to bond with them. Pay attention to the best company around you, not those notifications. Play games so you can encourage no-phones. Bring plush toys from MINISO Australia to spend the happiest picnic ever. Our suggestion, MINISO’s friendly and cheerful penguin, PENPEN. 

4. Compete in classic games.

Break the ice by playing some outdoor sports. Whether you’re waiting to eat or you want something to keep everyone busy, have some pre-set games or team sports for larger groups. Everyone should be involved in these fun activities.

5. Bring some art supplies

Appreciate the beautiful scenery around you, make some art. A canvas, acrylic paint or maybe MINISO’s Candy Rainbow Series Gel Pen if you’re in the mood for doodling.

6. Take pretty pictures of Jacaranda

Appreciate nature by snapping some photos of the gorgeous and awe-inspiring Jacaranda. The best times to get the best shot is early in the morning, usually before 9AM and in the afternoon after 4PM. Share your post on social media using hashtag #purpleseason.
