Coupland’s Kid’s Christmas Picnic

The Christmas tree is up, the sparkling lights are on and the Christmas parties are in full swing.


Once a year, the team at Coupland’s Head Office in Christchurch put on a fantastic day for the kiddies of Coupland’s to say thanks.


This year, the Coupland’s Kid’s Picnic was held on Saturday 7th December at Spencer Park in Christchurch. Although it started off raining, the sun and heat sure came out in force just as the kids picnic kicked off!


The men hopped on the BBQ’s and got them sizzling hot before cooking up a storm of chicken, beef patties, bacon and onions along with a few seasonal salads and Coupland’s Bread, of course. Everyone dived in!


Once food had settled down the fun began! A fun dinosaur bouncy castle was set up along with some giant garden games including connect four, chess and jenga. The kids were then divided into age groups to compete against one another for prizes – this is where the real fun began! This included apple bopping, running races, egg and spoon race and dress up as a baker race. The kids loved dressing up as mum or dad.





After the games, Santa arrived in a fire truck to treat the kids to some Christmas presents.




Once Santa had finished ho ho ho and all the presents were out of his sack, the fire brigade turned on their hoses to cool everyone down! It was a huge water fight, which was surly needed in the heat!




The day was then finished off with a GIANT lolly scramble, some ice cream and Coupland’s donuts – yum!





Thank you to the kids of Coupland’s, we wouldn’t be here without you and your support.
