Shout Reprogramming America For Fun Program

As a single mom, my life is pretty hectic from working a crazy schedule, dealing with homework and arranging play dates, after school and weekend activities. While I would not trade one moment of my crazy, over-scheduled life, I do feel as though there hasn’t been a lot of spontaneity.

I am thrilled to announce NYC Single Mom’s partnership with Shout® and their Reprograming America for Fun Program that is encouraging families across American to step back from their daily routines and “Carpe Diem” as they say to have some fun and live life out loud!

Want to live life out loud, too? Then head to Facebook where Shout® has developed the “Reprogramming America for Fun” App. Just log on and the app will integrate your user name and profile photo into a short, personalized video all about seizing the moment – setting you free to start living out loud and having fun, without the worry of getting a little messy. Definitely take a moment to share your own ideas about how to seize the moment on the Shout® Facebook page so moms everywhere (including me!) can get some great ideas.

In the meantime, Olympian and Mom Jennie Finch has teamed up with Shout®. Jennie has provided me with a few tips to reprogram my (and your) daily routine and live life out loud:

  • Unplug from Electronics – Make a commitment to take at least 30 minutes each day to unplug the whole family from their favorite gadgets and spend some quality time together doing a fun and creative activity. Encourage the whole family to go outside and get dirty! Fresh air is invigorating and allows children to run freely without the worry of knocking over breakables or bumping into furniture. Shout® Wipes ensure you can clean up stains on the go so everyone can get the most out of life and still look their best. For us, I am planning to take a walk around our neighborhood after dinner just to have some quality time with my daughter.

  • Get Messy with Craft Projects – Arts and crafts are another fun way to change up your daily routine with interactive, hands-on fun. Create a craft box of construction paper, glue, paint and seasonal items. Dedicate each month to a new craft project. For example – make “turkey hands” or acorn decorations in November and special ornaments or holiday decorations in December. These homemade craft projects foster creativity, add decoration to the house and are a fun memento to keep for years to come. Paint, glitter and markers are no match for my favorite Shout® Trigger Triple Acting Formula product. It is sure to keep us from ruining our clothes, or should I say, my daughter’s clothes.

  1. I wills stop stressing over my children get dirty and embrace activities that I have previously considered too messy such as finger painting, mud castles and puddle jumping! Life is too short :)

  2. Katherine Persons says:

    I am making brownies tonight and I promise to let my daughter crack the eggs

  3. shelly pitt says:

    love shout takes the kids stains right out.

  4. I’m definitely going to start diving into my craft projects! I put them off because I have chores and other daily life to do, but I really enjoy them, and I really want to just dive in and make a mess!

  5. I plan on seizing the day by having family craft night. Maybe finger painting :)


  6. Peter Schott says:

    Not sure if we need to make a lot of changes, but getting outdoors a bit more is always good – hiking, camping, playing – and not being worried about getting a little dirty while doing those things.

  7. cool video :) They did a nice job with it.

    I will play with my kids more.

  8. Kristine Eley says:

    I have always wanted to have a “trash the dress” session!!! I’m going to go nontraditional and get messy.

  9. Jaime Nicole says:

    I LOVED the reprogramming video….especially the rolling down the hill in the white clothes! I need to let go and let my kids get more dirty – more mud playing and grass rolling!

  10. I need to get down and dirty with them I’m usually the one to just watch everyone else play

  11. I will get off the sidelines and get on the fields to practice sports with my kids. Thanks

  12. Jamie Brigham says:

    I will try and have a better outlook on life, live life to the fullest and get messier while playing with my son. Letting him get and be dirty has been very hard on me.

  13. I’ll spend more time doing what my kids instead of at work!

  14. I am thinking I need cut loose and have a shaving cream fight with my 4 kids(outside of course).Thanks!

  15. I will be getting unplugged and spending more time with my family. I see dance parties, slumber parties and outdoor fun in my future!!

  16. Hollie Jahnke says:

    I will let my 3 year old daughter paint her own nails and let her jump right into those mud puddles.

  17. That video was so cool!!!!

    I will be joining my kids in their mission to make the biggest leaf pile ever, and then jumping in it. No matter how wet and dirty we get.

  18. hAve fun and don’t put off things you can do now with family

  19. I will let my grandson make mud pies if he likes.I went to the Shout’ Reprogramming America Facebook app and my grandson loved the video, his pic is my profile pic

  20. Really, the only time we seem to destress is when we are away from the computers. So have fun and go with the whole family to something like the mountains and walk around, enjoy the beauty, shop, have a meal together. Enjoy each other.

  21. Kellie Conklin says:

    That video reprogramming was fun, I especially liked the kaleidoscope part and knocking the coffee mug over :) To seize the moment and live life out loud I will not be afraid to let the kids I watch paint using acrylic paints. I will not sit there grimacing, hoping no paint spills. Instead I will smile and laugh along with them, knowing that any paint will come out of their clothes. Thanks for the great reminder to live in the moment and the great giveaway!

    Anyway, the change that I will make is to stop thinking ahead so much and just enjoy the given moments in time with my loved ones!
