Mud Drawings

During the first thaw, our playground had various spots of "perfect" mud.  We squished our feet into it and the children learned about suction.  One of the children used a stick to pick up the mud and asked "could I draw on the wall with it?"..."Give it a try" said I.

Try mud drawing or painting on various outdoor surfaces or bring the mud indoors and set some out at the art table.  You may also like to try setting out black earth, sand and water in the science area and give the children an opportunity to create their own perfect mud concoction.
Have fun getting muddy!!!

Until You Read Again....
