mud, mud, glorious mud

An advantage of a lot of rain is mud.  At least, many of my kidlets see it as an advantage!

We have a couple of pretty good mud holes on the school property.  The kids dig rivers, build dams, lose toy cars, (cry over toy cars), find toy cars, throw (small) rocks, are reminded not to splash other people, and create mud pies.  Good grubby fun!

 Last week there was a mud pie group effort.

And solitary dig in the mud with a stick efforts.

Luckily most of the kidlets have a change of clothes with them; after outside play time, there are muddy pants and socks draped all over the classroom.  (The jeans had a very muddy bum - I obviously put the wrong side up to dry!)

This book fit right in with our mud pie days.

When I watch my kidlets having fun in the mud, I can hear my mother singing  Flanders and Swann's Hippopotamus Song.

  1. I don't know how to get rid of the big gap in my post. Has anyone else experienced this - and do you know how to get rid of it.


  2. One of my favourite quotes:

    "The world is mud-luscious and puddle wonderful." e.e.Cummings

    I love our mud and rubber boot times!

  4. thanks Shannon - heading on over

  5. Stumbled across this from... somewhere - blogger help forum I think.

    Great blog thus far - but you haven't blurred out the children's faces properly, so it's still obvious who they are. May I suggest using a blur tool, rather than a semi-transparent shape? Just thinking for the kids safety, since this blog is public and viewable by anyone
