Every summer I get a grand idea to escape to an island getaway. I go through the motions of looking for the best priced hotels, flights, car rentals, but then it dawns on me that I have three kids and a five hour flight with kiddos in tow, is no escape! So I “bring the tropics home” in little ways throughout the summer!

Honeycomb

Here are a few ways I do that:

  • Special luau inspired dinners. I make a bomb Kahlua Pork in the crock pot that cooks for 24 hours. Hawaiian sea salt, ginger and little liquid smoke and yum! Serve it with a white rice and Asian style coleslaw and it’s amazing.
  • Water games. We recently set up our above ground pool, but if you don’t have the space for a pool, sprinkles are the next best thing!
  • Tropical themed games for the kiddos.  Bring home the water spouts, with a fun game of Twister. There are so many variations of the game. Make it messy with colored, tropical coconut scented shaving cream on each circle. The kids reach for each circle and the fun ensues!
  • After the kids have fun with Twister, those clothes need some cleaning! all® Fresh Tropical Mist™ is the newest scent offering from all. It brings the tropics home with the fresh scent of an island breeze.

Wondering how to make Twister messy? Follow along:

Get your favorite tropical scented shaving cream (or any will do), and spray into 4 different bowls. Add in 5 drops of food coloring with the coordinating colors of the Twister game. If you can’t find coconut scented shaving cream, you can always stir in some coconut extract for a island scent. Stir and stir some more.

Place a mound of colored shaving cream on each colored circle on the Twister game mat.

I highly suggest using all® Fresh Tropical Mist™ after all the fun. It has “stainlifters” ready and willing to remove those pesky stains from clothes, plus it will leave your clothes fresh, just like they have been hanging out in the tropics– light floral, with a touch of an ocean breeze! It reminds me of a time, sans kids, where my husband and I went on a cruise around the Caribbean. We would leave our towels and bathing suits out on the veranda to dry. The next day the clothes smelled so fresh and clean; it had to be from the salty ocean air of the tropics. The Fresh Tropical Mist of all brings me right back!

I purchased my all® Fresh Tropical Mist™ at Albertsons, but Walmart has it too, plus it all-ways costs 30% less than the leading brands! Can’t beat that with a coconut! To find NEW fresh tropical mist in store near you, visit all®’s website and click Where to Buy! Click here for a coupon for a $1.00 off!
