An unusual but fun picnic game idea is bat-run. All you need is a baseball bat or a long stick and an open area to play. Take the bat into an open area and made a goal about 30 ft away. Place one end on the bat on the ground, bend forward and place the other end to your forehead. Then spin around the bat 10 times. The object then is to find your way to a goal but it very difficult to do because you will be quite dizzy. The fastest time wins. This is a great picnic game idea for all ages and can be loads of fun as a company picnic idea.

Julie Brown writes, "One great children's picnic game idea (for those under 10) is to let them catch butterflies. We just bring along a few nets when we take our kids out on a summer picnic. Our daughters just love it! My son usually catches bugs instead of butterfiles but he enjoys it too. It might not technically be a children's picnic game idea but it's certainly something fun for kids to do on a summer picnic."
