With summer in full swing and the outdoors calling, there’s no better time to plan a picnic. Whether you're heading to the local park, a scenic beach, or even your own backyard, a picnic is the perfect way to enjoy the beautiful weather and spend quality time with family and friends.

To make your planning process smooth and enjoyable, I’ve created a fun Picnic Planner printable that ensures you have everything covered.

Why a Picnic Planner?

Planning a picnic might seem simple, but the details can quickly become overwhelming. From deciding on the menu to coordinating with guests and remembering all the essential items, there’s a lot to consider.

That’s where the Picnic Planner comes in.

This planner is designed to help you organize every aspect of your picnic, ensuring nothing is forgotten and your day goes off without a hitch.

How to Use Your Picnic Planner

Using the Picnic Planner is pretty straightforward. Start by downloading and printing the planner then add your information to the sections provided.

The Picnic Planner includes enough space to cover all your picnic needs. Here’s what you’ll find: date, time, and location, on the menu, guest list, shopping list, and notes. Here are a few tips:

  1. Fill in the Basics: Begin by entering the date, time, and location of your picnic. This helps you start with a clear vision of when and where your event will take place.

  2. Plan Your Menu: Think about what foods and drinks will make your picnic special. Write down everything from the main dishes to snacks and beverages. Don’t forget to consider any dietary preferences or allergies of your guests.

  3. Create Your Guest List: List the names of everyone you want to invite. This helps you keep track of who’s coming and makes it easier to follow up with reminders as the date approaches.

  4. Compile Your Shopping List: Based on your menu, write down all the items you need to buy. This list will make your shopping trip efficient and stress-free.

  5. Add Notes: Use the notes section for any extra details. This could include things like bringing extra napkins, packing a first aid kit, or even noting down a special location feature like a nearby playground or scenic spot.

A well-planned picnic can create lasting memories. With the Picnic Planner printable, you can ensure that all your picnic details are organized, leaving you free to relax and enjoy the day.

Whether you’re planning an intimate outing for two or a large gathering with friends and family, this planner will help make your picnic a success.

If you’re going to be printing in color, I really recommend investing in an HP Instant Ink-compatible printer. The quality of the finished product is amazing! If you don’t need a color printer, I highly recommend a laser printer like the Brother L23 Series. You will save hundreds on ink. You can also get a color laser printer which I would LOVE to have!


For everyday printables, planners, and coloring pages for the kiddos I normally use Hammermill Printer Paper, 20 Lb. I love that you can get a small box of 3 reams instead of having to buy one at a time or a whole case of 10.

If I want something a little nicer, I use this laser paper which is incredibly smooth and has very little to no ghosting on the other side. This is perfect if you like to use pens/markers that are prone to bleeding through to the other side.

For printing on A5 paper, I use this Blank 6-Hole Punched A5 Paper. You can also get it without the holes but it’s $6-7 more. Which I think is odd because it’s usually the other way around and you have to pay more for the hole punching.

If you're printing a binder cover that is fade-resistant and lasts a long time, I would recommend the best paper using Epson Presentation paper. It's heavy like cardstock (48 lb), is great when laminated, and is made to last for decades.
