25 Down and Dirty Activities for Boys and How to Keep Them Clean

Thank you to Irish Spring Signature for sponsoring today's post! #MySignatureMove #CollectiveBias #Sponsored

   Being a mom of boys can sometimes involve a lot of filth. I remember being a young mom, and another Army wife telling me, "Wait until they are older, no matter how much they shower, teenage boys just stink!". Being as naive as I was, I thought she was crazy. Boy was she right. I thought cleaning active boys was hard--I was not prepared for teenage stink! That was, until we discovered Irish Spring. Talk about taking care of that smell! The new Irish Spring Signature Line keeps my boys smelling like clean little men. I love that the smell lingers, but is not overwhelming.  From the mathlete, to the athlete, Irish Spring keeps their skin healthy and clean.

Somedays, a boy just needs to get down and dirty. My boys will sleep well after a day of good dirty activities and a nice hot shower. Here's my list of 25 activities to keep those kiddos rolling in the dirt!
