Mud Play



Our muddy area provides so many possibilities for children.  Mud is an open ended material, stimulating children’s creativity and imagination.  It can simply be used for digging and hunting for worms or treasure.  Children can combine the mud with water to provide a wonderful, soothing, sensory experience.  The area can be used for role play as a ‘mud kitchen’ a ‘building site’ or ‘road works’ – the possibilities are endless.  The muddy area is somewhere children can spend time alone or where they play with their friends, sharing, working together, communicating and problem solving!
