Mud, mud, I love mud
As you probably noticed, warm weather brings puddles and mud to our playground. Although it is frustrating for the adults who have to wash clothes daily, for the children it is an exquisite treat. The play is messy, but the learning and cooperation that goes along with this play is priceless. Children of all ages work together: filling containers, building dams, and just frolicking. And who knows, the play lead to a child becoming a hydraulic engineer with the knowledge they have gained during their exploration.
Hang in there. The mud is bound to last only a few months.
