Mud Play Date

We had an awesome playdate I have been planning this ever since Mikey’s Messy Birthday Party!

I made mud paint. I mixed powdered tempera paint with mud and let the kids fingerpaint or brush the paint onto the paper. Throwing mud paint balls at the paper became a favorite.

The paint was actually pretty awesome

I had a pool full of gardening tools, flowers and little planters next to it

Mud pit filled with bugs and tongs to dig them out

Digging for bugs and then…

they were coated by the end

The kids had so much fun sliding into the mud pools

The more coated the slides were with mud the better they were!

We had two mud slides with pools at the bottom

Ooey Gooey Squishy Mud

After everything getting clean in the Kid Wash the kids named the “Mud Wash”
