Spring Fever Sponsor: Picnic World picnic blanket

Living in Arizona, we have gorgeous outdoor weather most of the year.  Many activities that bring us outside also require a comfy place to sit- Spring training baseball games boasting cheap lawn seating (ideal for a large family like ours), play dates at the park, camping and beach trips in near-future plans- and a picnic blanket is the perfect seating solution! Compact to carry, yet enough seating for the whole family…

We received the Mega mat Folded Picnic Blanket with Shoulder Strap in Salsa Stripe print from Picnic World to review.  This is an all season waterproof blanket with a soft acrylic top.  It measures 68″ x 82″, perfect size for our family of 6.  It folds up nicely, and came with instructions on how to fold it up (in case you can’t remember), and has an adjustable, padded shoulder strap for carrying (which is also detachable if you don’t want it there).  The blanket top has a soil and stain resistant coating, but it’s machine washable if needed! Love that, especially having 4 kids!

We homeschool, and often like to sit outside to do schoolwork and enjoy the beautiful Spring weather.  Up until now, we’ve used towels to sit on in the grass. They work well enough, but they aren’t very big, and tend to absorb any moisture that may be in the grass, leading to a slightly damp tushie and school books as well. With a 100% fully waterproof backing, we no longer have to worry about that!

I was able to use the picnic blanket today at a family birthday party at the park.  It was a magnet for all the kids, as you can see.

You can also see just how large it is!  I fit my rear in there too, and there was still room for more.  Of course, the kids immediately spilled on it, but it brushed right off!  It really was easy to fold.  I looked at the instructions once, but now know how to fold it and shouldn’t need them again.  It folds right up into itself, with the shoulder strap all ready to go!

I am thrilled to have this picnic blanket!  We’ll be taking a beach trip next month, and you can bet this will be packed with us to take!

  1. Wow, that's really awesome. We just saw one in the store for 50 bux, it folds into itself with a strap but not quite so small, bigger than a laptop bag :0. So this one is very neat.

  2. This picnic blanket would be perfect for going to the park once Baby Girl gets here. The big sisters could play on the playground and me and Baby Girl could relax in the shade! Love it!

  3. Love the blanket in Blue Chambray! Beautiful.
