I am a firm believer in unstructured play. There is not enough of it anymore, everywhere you turn there is structured activities or events. There is nothing wrong with that sometimes but we have forgotten how to to just let our kids PLAY. I was so excited to see that Shout believes that too. They see the beauty of the child’s imagination and unstructured play. Launched last year to help educate parents on the benefits of play, Shout’s Go Play initiative has been working to get families having fun outdoors without worrying about getting dirty.
Shout has continued on with their partnership with Jennie Finch, Olympic athlete and Mom, as their Shout stain expert. Between her years playing softball and caring for her two sons, Jennie has encountered her fair share of stains.
So Moms, let the messes go! Enjoy you summer to the fullest! Let your kids play in the mud, eat Popsicle s or 2 or 3 scoops of ice cream on cones-run, play, and invent. Don’t let the stains worry you!
About the contest:
Unstructured play gives children the freedom to create and play with their imaginations – so Jennie and Shout® want to see what your family can come up with! Find out more details to enter here.
During the contest (which runs from June 4 through July 1, 2012) simply submit photos of your children creating a game with just with their imaginations, three objects (such as glitter, a fly swatter, and a water wing) and the permission to play. Fans can vote for their favorite photos every week Thursday through Sunday and once a photo is submitted, it will be re-entered to win each week, so there is no need to resubmit.
My daughter loving her homemade stove made out of a cardboard box with Cd’s as burners, she plays with this one way more then her real play kitchen. Her daddy helped her make it! She loves to take it outside when she plays with her neighbor friend. She just picks it up and goes!

- Shout Advanced Ultra Gel Brush
