Outdoor Blankets For Kids

Summer Must-Have: The Perfect Picnic Blanket

To me, Summer is all about being in the backyard, walking around barefoot. Unfortunately, my daughter hasn't yet learned the joys of feeling the grass under her feet, so a picnic blanket or outdoor mat is still a must-have now that I'm a yard-owning suburbanite as it was when I spent Summer afternoons at the park when I was a city dweller. If you're in the same boat, consider investing in one of the five outdoor blankets pictured above. Most are waterproof, and all fold up nicely to fit over your shoulder or in your picnic basket. Skip Hop's version even comes with its own cooler bag! Believe us, your grass-averse kids will thank you.
