Going on Picnic Memory Game

This classic game can be played anywhere really, but great if you are going on road trip this summer as it is a great car game, or on a rainy day at the cottage or at home.

How to Play:

This game can be played with a small group but the more the merrier for more fun.

  • The first person starts off by saying, "I'm going on a picnic and I'm bringing..." followed by something that you can eat that begins with A, such as "...apples" or "...artichokes"
  • The second player repeats what the first person said, but adds a food that begins with B. "I'm going on a picnic and I'm bringing apples and bananas."
  • You then continue on with the letter C, being sure to remember the A and B words that were said previously.
  • As get further into the alphabet it will get harder to remember all of the other items.
  • The last player to be able to recite all the items on the list in order is the winner.
