Kids are dirty. Our family loves to get filthy when we play outside. That’s why when I heard about Maytag Laundry‘s #MyFilthiestPlays contest, I had to get in on it! If you enjoy getting down in the dirt with your kiddos, then this contest is for you. Having a high-quality, powerful and up to date washer/dryer in your home is super important for busy families. The new Maytag Top Load Washer and Dryer are where it’s at. When we visited Grandma’s house to shoot the video below, we knew that we needed a good washer if we ever wanted to see my daughter’s clothes live to be worn another day.
Knowing Grandma had a Maytag at her house, we threw our slip and slide into our minivan and drove over to play a new kind of baseball…IronDAD’s Slip & MUDSlide Baseball! With all four bases setup in a traditional baseball diamond, we setup a tee ball and plastic, orange Major League Baseball bat to play our game. The rules of the game were simple…hit the ball, run the bases and slide into home. But this slide wasn’t just any slide…it was a mud slide. Here’s how it turned out:
In addition to IronDAD’s Slip and Mudslide Baseball, there are lots of activities your family can do to get filthy outside and enjoy time together. Check out some of these great resources for lots of fun getting filthy!
