PostHeaderIcon Kick Summer into Drive with All® Free Clear

Disclosure: This is a post written by me and any opinions expressed are my own. I may or may not have received compensation for my services.

Bring a single Mom means sometimes looking for a lot of free ways to keep the boys entertained. Now that the gorgeous weather has rolled around, I am not always a big fan of being outdoors. Why? Because when I turned 30, I magically developed allergies. Heck of a birthday present huh? But of course, being the Mom I have to suck it up and head out with the boys. We have a lot of beautiful metro parks around here that you could spend all day at. They are huge!

A lot of space and Royal and Spencer are happy with the smallest of things. On Wednesday we sat outside throwing around paper airplanes. I can’t express how truly proud of them this makes me. What kid wants to spend an hour anymore throwing around a paper airplane? MINE! Amazing how times change with each generation.

With the boys now wanting to always go fishing with John, running around on the playground, walking the trails, and everything else, it’s starting to make me notice allergy season is in full bloom! With allergists expecting an earlier, longer and more severe season than usual,I can use all the help I can get battling this. While you’re likely aware that you and your family breathe in allergens while outside, what you may not know is that those allergens are getting trapped on your clothing.  According to a recent study, who knew that on a peak pollen day up to 7 million pollen grains can get trapped on a large t-shirt? 7 million! All® free clear is the #1 recommended detergent brand by dermatologists and allergists for sensitive skin. Like scented all®, it has its own powerful stainlifter™ that fights tough dirt and stains. That means it’s tough on stains yet gentle enough for the whole family. Plus, it’s safe for use in standard and HE machines. It rinses clean and has a gentle, hypoallergenic formula.

Here is a list of hings that we like to do that don’t cost a thing.

  1. Picnics: Royal is always asking for picnics. If the weather is bad we just do it on the living room floor. It’s fast to pack up and head to the park. Here are some great Picnic Tips from The Weather Channel. A picnic can make many slow hours go by very quickly.
  2. Paper Airplanes: I found this great site that shows you how to make all kinds of Paper Airplanes! I never knew there were so many. Amazingly enough, some of them glide like you wouldn’t believe. The boys usually make them their own with markers and crayons. Here are 10 Paper Airplane ideas to get you started.
  3. Scavenger Hunt: My Area has some great Metro Parks as I mentioned above. They offer playgrounds, outdoor grills, nature trails and more. I like to plan out a scavenger hunt. Sometimes I think of it while we are there and I just randomly throw out things for them to look for. Since Spencer is only 5 and Royal is almost 10, I try to keep it a little simpler. When I plan them, Royal gets the harder list which he hates ;)
  4. Water Fun: I am happy that my apartment building has a pool so the boys can go in whenever they want but, if you don’t have access to a pool there are many ways to play with water that are free or very inexpensive. *Balloons are very cheap so consider filling some up and letting the kids toss them around. *Let the kids run loose with the garden hose. * Give the kids a few buckets of water and some large paintbrushes or rollers and let them “paint” your fence, porch, play set, driveway, sidewalk, or garage. * Water Duck, Duck, Goose. Have players sit in a circle. The first person to be “it” walks around the circle with a cup, pitcher, or watering can, dribbling a few drops on each person’s head—until he chooses a victim to be drenched with all the water from his container. The game continues like normal Duck Duck Goose and they chase each other around the circle.

    The person in my home that experiences allergies is my husband. The only remedy for him is visiting the doctor to get a prescription.


  • Maryann D. says:

    My whole family suffers from allergies. My husband has skin allergies like eczema, so I always purchase natural cleaning products and laundry detergents. We have seasonal allergies and have to use allergy medications often. We also have central A/C so we do not have to open the windows and let the pollen come in the house.

  • Tabitha says:

    I do and I just deal with it.
    My daughter and takes Claratin.
    My bf and he takes Alegra.
    Even our dog and sometimes he gets benadryl.

  • Jessie C. says:

    Hubby suffers from allergies. We do spring cleaning and get OTC medicines to help.

  • Elena says:

    My child suffers from allergies. I make sure we always have OTC medicine in the house.

  • Ellen B says:

    My younger son has allergies and we need to dust more I guess. My older son just broke out in hives the other day. His wife changed laundry detergents and I think he may be allergic.

    I have seasonal allergies and I take allergy medication.
