Mud Pies!


It's a hot day here today!
Butterfly and I talked about how some animals, like hippos, elephants, rhinos, pigs, even deer, stay cool in hot weather... they use MUD!  So we set up a Mud Station!


Gather mud pie making supplies, and the most important ingredients- a bucket of dirt and a bucket of water!


I brought out a muffin pan, pans from the recycling box, measuring cup, stirring spoons and whisk, some empty jars, buckets and shovels,


things to decorate mud pie cakes with- rocks, gem stones, bottle caps, sticks,


and lots of popsicle sticks and straws.


Mud Station is ready!


Let child loose!


What a great sensory experience to have in the backyard, while creating and exploring!


Here is Butterfly's "birthday cake", all decorated,


and with birthday candles!


Now watch child play for a long happy time!


And invite a neighbourhood friend over to join in the fun!
