In our July issue, we asked kids to tell us about their perfect picnic. Below, find the winning entries. Léonie and Sophia each receive a $25 gift certificate to Crow Bookshop in Burlington. 

Léonie Fournier, 10
Montpelier

Going on a picnic in Vermont makes you feel like world peace has finally arrived.
A fresh meal is waiting for you as you walk through the warm grass.
Slowly, you start to sit on the grass. You feel is spiking up, onto your knees.
You smell freshly baked bread, followed by smooth, yellow cheeses, and sweet, blood red cherries.
A huge bottle of icy cold basil lemonade sits next to 30 pieces of juicy watermelon.
You would think it couldn’t get any better, but it does.
Behind the watermelon, you see a large bunch of yellow bananas and small cakes.
It all looks wonderful. You really can’t wait to start eating.

Sophia Van Zyl, 10
Addison

On a family picnic, I would bring a salad that makes my stomach start grumbling.
With peppers and carrots and cheese.
Pass the ranch dressing, please!
For dessert, I would eat my mom’s cookies, which cannot be beat.
After, I’m full.
Picnic meals cannot be dull!

Find the latest writing prompt in the Just For Kids section of our August issue. The deadline is Wednesday, August 15. Happy writing!
