Our 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.
