Are You Ready for International Mud Day?

The world is mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful.
-E. E. Cummings

International Mud Day will be celebrated on June 29 (or since it’s a Saturday in many places, it might be celebrated on the 28). Grab a cup of tea and visit Bonnie’s Global CafĂ© on the World Forum website to read about the origins of this wonderful event.

A helpful resource for ideas about muddy fun is the Out of the Box Training Kit, “A Muddy First: Play for Joy and Learning,” by Michael Follet, Kristian Hancock and Diana Suskind.  

      “Welcome to the Mud Ball Catapult. /  Make a mud ball. /  Load the catapult  / Take aim at the hut wall. / Fire!"

“Use the pots, pans, and kitchen utensils to create your own Mud Kitchen!"
This area allows all chefs to appear. Using natural materials, cooks both young and old work together to make fine double-chocolate mud pies. And, oh, those muddy pancakes are a hit!”
