Prepare for Summer with Theisen’s

Our family is definitely ready for summer! Over the past few weeks, these warmer temps have given us the itch to get outdoors and explore. We made a visit to Theisen’s to pick up some of our summer essentials. Theisen’s is the perfect place to prepare for summer!

We spend many of our days visiting parks, getting wet in creeks and pools, and more. To prepare for these fun and adventurous days, I always stock up on some necessities to keep in our park bag and/or in the back of the van. Theisen’s has everything you need!

  • Kites: I always recommend keeping a kite in the car. If we don’t, we end up at a park and I think to myself “today would be a perfect day to fly a kite!” Theisen’s offers some cute Melissa & Doug kites including this fun dragon shaped kite. Another simple and fun activity to keep the kids entertained for hours!
  • Bug Catchers: Keeping a butterfly net and bug house in your park bag is great too! My children love to catch fun insects and bugs to take a closer look at them. This is a great way to make it a fun learning experience. Ask them questions about their new 8 legged friend (eeeek!)
  • Summer Shoes:¬†I am always on the hunt for the perfect summer shoe. Something they can run in, stomp in creeks, and breathable. I picked up these fun Itasca shoes! Comfy and perfect for summer. We also love rain boots for those super muddy areas to explore.

  • Snacks: Snacks are required for any trip away from the house. Theisen’s offers tons of snack options including beef snack sticks, trail mix and more. A great place to stock up!

We decided this summer we would add fishing to our Summer Bucket List. Monte has been fishing once and he has been asking to do it again. Theisen’s offers a ton of fishing gear from fishing poles, fishing kayaks, fish line, fishing kits and more. We picked up two super simple fishing poles for the kids to get them started. They were thrilled when we showed them!
