* Shout - Go Play! and Card Giveaway

We make some serious messes in this house.


Art Messes.


Food and Science Messes.


Dirt and Grass-stain Messes...

Throw in a terminally ill cat who barfs daily
(frequently on my couch -- thanks cat.)
and you'll 
realize that the inside of my washing machine
can end up more like a spin art machine : )


I was recently contacted by Growing Tree Toys
and
SC Johnson's Shout
for their new Go Play Initiative.
(Check out the fun free goodies they sent me
-- thank you!)

They are trying to encourage kids and adults to
go out and play,
which is fundamental to positive cognitive development
and a healthy outlet for our minds and bodies.
When my kids drive me crazy,
I bundle them up and send them
out into the backyard.
It's good for their mental health (and mine.)

This is one of the reasons
I've started walking/running again.
Time spent in nature,
exercising outdoors
is how I
  recharge my mental batteries.


Do we have messes to clean up around here?
Do we like to play outside?
Umm... yes.

So, I gave the Shout Advanced stain stick a spin
and my smocks look a whole lot better!
Also love the Color Catcher sheets,
(I've been a fan of these for years--
I actually gave them to my mom
last year in her Christmas stocking, because I'm a
giant nerd and I love them)

I can throw one in a load of mixed colors
(read: my daughter's rainbow wardrobe!)
and no more dingy colors mixing.


See the fun pack of 52 Nature Activities
card set Growing Tree Toys sent me?

(So many fun learning toys, games, Schleich animals, and
fun art pads on their site!)

52 games, activities, 
and art projects for kids
to do in nature.

Want a fun pack of cards too?
Leave a comment telling me

What's your favorite 
fall activity with your kids?
(make sure I have a way to contact you)

I'll pick a winner
at midnight EST
on Friday October 22, 2010. 
Giveaway open to US Residents Only. 

Fondly,
pink and green mama
