Playing in the mud. There is nothing else quite like it. Most children not only love it, but are drawn to it.
I have to admit one of my children had a nack for finding the only spot of mud in an area and ending up in it. It was a talent I did not always appreciate! That said, playing in the mud is a sensory treat, a creative exploration, and a lot of fun for children.
Here's something odd...wealthy parents who want and can afford the best for their young children are now regularly paying to send their children to schools and camps to play outside and in the mud. Your family can live the life of luxury, take your child outside and let your child explore mud! If you don't have a good spot in your own yard or within walking distance of your home, I recommend a few towels in the car.
Warm weather is the perfect time to make a little time for mud play. Enjoy!
