A modest picnic makes for a Mother's Day meal kids can handle and moms will enjoy.

Last year on Mother’s Day, my son served me a peanut butter sandwich on the porch. A friend of mine heads to the park with her kids to eat chicken out of the bucket. Whether in a backpack, a picnic basket or a paper bag, a picnic is a treat. Here’s one the kids can pack. Lets face it, for most moms, it’s not about the food, but the thought. Don’t forget the Frisbee . . . or the wine.
