Fishing Gift Ideas and Family Card Game Giveaway

keller-caught-a-fish

The great outdoors offer so many family adventures like camping, hiking, boating, biking and fishing! Sounds like a fun trip! In our southwest Wisconsin hometown, we’re surrounded by beautiful opportunities for outdoor activities. Recently, we’ve been doing more fishing. The Wisconsin and Mississippi Rivers have many public lands which are accessible using MyCountyParks.com, Hipcamp.com or Recreation.gov. These public spaces include fishing piers, boat launches, picnic pavilions and campgrounds for tent or RV’s.

I’ve really taken as many opportunities this year, to go camping, walk more (thank you HCA) and I continue to look for fun, kid accessible fishing nooks. I’ve let my family know that if they do not give my holiday gift ideas, I will be buying them outdoor gear, like fishing gifts! 😉 Below are some of fishing gifts that I’ll be putting under our Christmas tree for my family and friends who love fishing!

GONE FISH’n—The Legend of Leech Lake Card Game – ONLY! $9.99

We LOVE this card Game! I broke out our GONE FISH’n family card game to play with my boys and we played over and over. I asked the boys, “Do you want to try playing GONE FISH’n more?” and they replied, “YES!, this is so fun, let’s keep playing!”

Gone Fish’n by TREND enterprises is a fun family card game designed for 2-4 players ages 6 and up. Setting up and playing this card game is very easy and exciting! We noticed that even when the Game Warden took away our fishing licenses, and we had to put all our fish back in the water, we were still able to catch up to other players! We also loved how there was not only a Big Eddie “Island” card but also, a Shovel and Gold Fish card worth many points. We will continue to play GONE FISH’n through the holidays and in the future as a family too. Please enter our Gone Fish’n card game giveaway to win one of your own! Ends 12/8/21.

WaterGame Board Game by Adventerra Games

WaterGame is a cooperative board game which is really fun and teaches kids and families tips on how to save water. In this educational game, players move down the river and use the community water tank to work together to save water for each of the board game players. We love how this game encourages each other to work together with the water saving or water wasting cards and answering quiz cards.

Glamping hacks and how to stay cool while camping

Glamping hacks and how to stay cool while camping

One of the only negative aspects of camping is that we are so dependent on the weather. If it is raining, super-hot or cold, it’s difficult to have fun and enjoy the great outdoors without some creativity! Below are some tips on how to stay cool while camping and other glamping hacks too!

  • Build a “Redneck air conditioning”. Get a styrofoam cooler, fill it with an ice block, cut a hole in the top and insert a batter-operated fan inside the top of the cooler lid blowing out.

Bucket Air Conditioner

  • Erect a tarp shade using a tree or your vehicle to shade your campsite and enjoy the shade.
  • Go swimming.
  • Setup your tent in the shade.
  • Remove your rain fly. Let the air flow when the weather calls for no rain and if you’re not already, consider a tent with screen or mesh sides.
  • Find the direction of the wind and aim your tent door face the income breeze.
  • Use a sheet instead of a sleeping bag.
  • Use a camping cot. Lifting your body off the ground will provide some needed air flow.
  • Enjoy some indoor activities in the cool AC while camping like a brewery tour, winery tour, see a movie or go to a museum.
  • Camp in the cooler months like Spring, Fall or Winter.
  • Drink cold beverages.
  • Buy a rechargeable portable solar or battery operated fan to keep cool.
  • Drink plenty of water!
  • Trade in your socks and shoes for sandals! Cooling your feet will help you stay much cooler.
  • Wait to light the fire until the sun goes down. If you were planning to cool breakfast and lunch over the fire, change your plans, use a solar oven or make breakfast or lunch using a portable stove or camp grill.
