Home Kids Grammar Comprehension Picnic



One cold day in winter, Mr. & Mrs. Patel decided to go for a picnic to the Country Club. Bins, Megs & Dee were very excited and jumped with joy. They packed up their swim suits, skates, games and lots of stuff to eat. Their parents packed up the eatables, tins of Coke and other necessary things.

 They set off to the Green Woods in a Gypsy. On the way, the children clapped and sang songs. They spotted many cars on the way and waved to the passengers of a train at the railway crossing. They ate oranges and peanuts on the way and had great fun. They reached the picnic spot and were warmly greeted with a welcome drink. They enjoyed boating, fishing and played ball games over there. They swimmed in the swimming pool and rolled on their skates. They enjoyed the lunch and relished the ice cream. A grass snaked frightened Meg’s pet dog Tuffy, when it saw it crawling and Dee too got scared of the fish that hopped over his head. Bins was so excited that he almost fell down the slopes while playing with the ball. In the evening, the family returned back home with sweet memories of a happy day spent at the Club.
