winter mud play

For a few days the temperature has gone above zero... meaning the snow has been melting, and the ground no longer resembling concrete... it also means the return of mud... a great play resource!!

The children SOOn discovered the thick ozzy muddy patch otdoors today... at first just with feet... and later a hands on experience...

They got quite messy for sure...


To clean off... well we have no hose to wash them down outside... but I took some warm soapy water out so that they could wash the mud out of their mittens and wash the mud off their arms and legs... and once they looked fairly OK, I poured the water down their legs to  get that thick layer off to make sure the overalls could be put in a washing machine...

I think the children had just as much fun washing the mud off as they did playing with the mud...
