In celebration for International Mud Day, children were engaged in diﬀerent mud activities during our outside time. They painted rocks and wood planks using mud. They had a blast pretend cooking mud soup and making mud cupcakes, adding rocks and petals as toppings. It was a wonderful and fun experience that helps them connect to the natural world by allowing them to interact with natural materials.
