Shout out Fall Fun!!

I was sent a fun box of Shout products and a card set of 52 Activities in Nature to review from Growing Tree Toys.  Growing Tree Toys sells learning toys for children of ALL AGES.  They teamed up with Shout to work on the Shout Go Play initiative.   

I love Fall! It comes at the right time every year :)  I'm always so ready to turn off the air conditioner and open the windows!  I love how the evenings cool down and the leaves change.  Not only this but I love all the activities that we get to do in the fall, too! 
Shout knows play is so much more than fun and games. Studies show that unstructured play helps kids build fundamental skills like problem solving, coping, and conflict resolution. In other words: play is how kids become happy, healthy adults. Fall has arrived with crisp, cool air and new reasons to go out and play.  So let them go play! The one thing you won’t do is worry about their clothes; play should get messy and Shout can help.
 Fall usually means outdoors! This year we are lacking on the rain but not lacking on the fun! I can't believe that October is almost over! We've been in the leaves, hiking, evening fires, painting, pumpkin carving and plan more like hayrides and more bonfires!  This is also the time for colored hair spray and face paint!

 
These are great activities but some of them can be very messy!  Shout always comes to the rescue!  I recieved Shout Advanced Ultra Gel, Shout Trigger Laundry Stain Remover, and the Shout Color Catcher . I love the Shout Advanced Ultra Gel. It is a real thick gel and you can really work it into tough, ugly stains.  The Shout Trigger Laundry Stain Remover is a staple in my laundry room and is used for those every day messes.

I finally used the Shout Color Catcher.  I've always wondered (and still wonder) how that color catcher sheet works.  To try it out, I did a load of my kitchen throw rugs with a few kitchen dish towels.  The rugs are colorful and the towels are cream color.  When the wash was finished the towels were still cream color, the rugs looked great and the Shout Color Catcher was the color of the rugs!  I do not get  how this product works but it really did catch the color and not allow it to bleed on my towels! My girls do their own laundry so I'm going to show them the color catcher and have them start using it with their laundry. 

52 Activities in Nature (52 Series)
Besides the Shout, we also reviewed the 52 Activites in Nature Cards by Growing Tree Toys.  I carry the cards in my camera bag to have them handy on our Fall outdoor excursions.  We homeschool so these cards are come in handy to help fill our outdoor time together and gives us ideas on how to interact with nature. 
 
One of the cards explains that we are a "guest in nature."  Nature is the home to plants and animals.  We should always show respect and be considerate of what surrounds us and to disturb as little as possible.  There are 52 fun cards in this deck.  One of my favorite is to lie down, close your eyes and stretch out your limbs!  Then feel around you and guess what you are touching.  I love this!
Time to get out the bubbles, pack a lunch and go explore outdoors.  Don't be afraid to  let the kids get dirty because if they do you know that SHOUT can help you out!
 

I received the SHOUT pack and Activity cards free of charge to blog about the Shout Go Play Initiative.  No other compensation was received. My words and opinions of the products are my own. Try them out to form your own opinions. Thanks to Shout and  Growing Tree Toys Blog..  I'm also an Amazon Affliflate
