Mud, Mud, Glorious Mud

I will admit that we have not been getting out much lately. The weekends have been spent cooped up at home. Even at half term the only time we ventured out was to  go somewhere else indoors. 
This week we had a really sunny day and it happened to be the day I was invited to the Little Man’s school to come and enjoy their mud kitchen.

 I wasn’t really sure what to expect.
There was lots of mud!

The kids put on some old clothes and wellies and were told to just enjoy themselves.

 Mud can be so much fun.
There were buckets of slushy water to help make more mud.

There were lots of utensils to help carry the water and slushy mud from one place to another.

There were pots and pans, ladels, shovels, spades, spoons, kettles, trays everything you need to make the perfect mud pie or leaf lasagne or worm bolognese. The kids had so much fun.

Hooray for sunny days and glorious mud!

    How much fun! I remember making mud pies when I was little. I think I'm going to just go for it and arrange for my kids to do this too. Happy memories!

      Yes, I'm going to let my kids do this in our own garden too…I'm a little worried about them bringing the mess in, perhaps one of those walk through showers like you get at the swimming pool before they come in 🙂

    Mud kitchen's are always so much fun, I really want to get one started here on the farm! Little Man looks engrossed in making mudpies! Messy fun is always the best fun… I'm just never excited about the clean up afterwards! Thanks for linking up with Country Kids.
