Mud Faces for International Mud Day

mud faces on trees for international mud dayOur first week of the school holidays has been rainy. Perfect for our preparation for International Mud day on Saturday.  We have been planting bulbs and sunflowers and finding bugs and worms under the ground.

Today we gave our trees mud faces. This is one of the many fabulous outdoor ideas that can be found in the Woodland Trusts  Woodland Adventure Booklets , free to download from their website.  We used materials from our loose parts station and from around the garden.

    What a great idea to make mud faces on trees. I’ve not got any trees in the garden but will be trying this in granny’s garden x

    I’ve seen this activity done before in a local National Trust venue and bought some clay in preparation to do it at home. The clay has been moved somewhere and so I’ve forgotten about it! Need to dig it out (pardon the pun) and have a go!

    Nipping over from County Kids.


  5. We also made a mud face in our garden for International Mud Day! My son loved it!
    It’s great to see what variations you have come up with….a lovely blog post :-)
