Jellystone picnic | Family Picnic

It’s summertime at Yogi-On-The-Lake and just right for a family picnic (or pic-a-nic, as Yogi would say) under the trees.

So, pack your basket and set out for your favorite spot at the Sandy Beach, but WATCH OUT! Yogi Bear is a notorious picnic thief whose most famous line is “Hey Boo-Boo, let’s go get us a pic-a-nic basket”!

Ranger Smith can’t be everywhere, you know. Yogi and Boo-Boo could pop out from behind any bush and snatch your lunch before you know it!

What’s In The Basket

Play with your food and pack family-friendly fun fare like…
  • Special picnic tablecloth*
  • Hard boiled eggs
  • String Cheese & Easy Cheese
  • Fun sandwiches (Pro Tip: Cut the crusts off)
  • Seasonal fruits
  • Peanut butter-banana caterpillars (Recipe at
  • Flavored or plain bottled water (Pro tip: Freeze the bottles first, by the time you get to your picnic site, they will have thawed but still be ice cold)
  • Grown-up drinks (Don’t forget the bottle opener!)
After Lunch Fun & What Does * Mean?

Twister – You know kids like to play games, so being the clever Mama Bear & Papa Bear that you are, you have invented a special picnic tablecloth* for this exact occasion. One side looks like a regular tablecloth. You know this because you’ve just eaten lunch and squirted everybody with Easy Cheese.

The other side, though, is your genius invention – you can make your own Twister game by painting colorful circles. Make it as big as you like to accommodate as many kids as necessary. Have a grown-up drink while the kids are Twisting.

A Tisket, A Tasket – Use a paper napkin to play this game. Just like Drop-the-Handkerchief, but sung to the tune and lyrics of Ella Fitzgerald’s jazz hit.

Let’s Clean Up Game – Uh-Oh! Here come Yogi and Boo Boo to steal the leftovers! Everybody grab everything and put it all back in the basket.
