Monsoon season has officially started for some places, and it can be a bummer, especially when you have planned a whole day out with your kids and family over the weekend. But if you're someone who loves adventure and wouldn't mind getting a little wet, this is for you!
We have curated a list of essentials you might require on your adventurous picnic day. Don't forget to pack these things when you picnic on your terrace or in a park's gazebo near you.
Beach Bags are perfect for a rainy day picnic as all your items in the bag will remain untouched by water considering the material it is made of, big enough to dump all your essentials in one place. Most beach bags have an inner lining so you can store your wet items in the bag without worrying about getting the outer area wet. Either way, your items remain safe!

Waterproof Picnic Blanket
No picnic is complete without a blanket, especially if you want to avoid sitting on the wet ground. You require blankets or mats that you can sit on without worrying about sitting on wet surfaces. It is advisable to invest in a blanket/mat that's easy to clean, where any dust particles or grass easily rolls off the mat, keeping it clean to carry back home.
