All about a picnic blanket

Put a blanket in the middle of your lounge or wherever.

It saves cleaning stuff up and you can convince your kid everything is a really fun picnic – even though you’re stuck in your house and it’s not really that fun for anyone anymore.

Bonus tip: blankets will catch papadum crumbs. Papadums take an age for little kids to eat. Ergo: blankets + papadum = time filler while you attempt to do some work.

You can buy them from the supermarket and cook them in a few seconds in the microwave with a bit of oil. Healthy? F knows, but they taste quite nice.
