Mud

Sunnyboy loves playing in the mud. We have a little area in our garden reserved especially for the children to dig and play in the mud.



Add some water and sticks as well and it's even more fun.



Playing with mud is simple and free, but it keeps Sunnyboy and the other neighbourhood children busy for hours.

  9. That is so cool that you have a designated mud pit! Most parents would shy away from all the dirt :) But what a great place for them to play.

  15. My girls love dirt in various forms. Deladis is more likely to be found in the sandbox making neat sculptures or filling buckets and dumping them again. Ivy on the other hand likes the mud or garden dirt as well. She eats it though, which I go back and forth about whether or not that is a healthy thing. :)

  17. I make sure my kids have a digging spot, too. They love it. We get a lot of rain in the NW and they have so much fun making mudpies. I think this summer I may let them plant some of their own flowers. Then, they can have fun watering them. Course, I'll have to do that in a separate area from the digging spot!!

  21. I love that you have dedicated mud spots! I have a section that grows no grass ... I think I know what we'll do with that spot now, because after all these years, the kids still haven't outgrown mud play.
