Wordless Wednesday: Mud People

Wordless Weds: International Mud DayWe had a big rainstorm the other day. So, I suggested to Nat and Gan that they go outside and make mudpies. They had no idea what mudpies were. Whoa! I’ve been very remiss in parenting if an almost 5 year old and almost 3 year old don’t know what mudpies are!

And since today is International Mud Day, it’s time to celebrate by getting muddy!

Finding Earthworms in the Mud

Yes those are handprints on his back

Once they got over wondering whether it was okay to get dirty, they had a ball. Nat served up a full mud feast from their kitchen. Gan gently relocated every earthworm to a safe area, explaining to each worm what he was doing.

Do you ever have little mud people at your home? Have any interesting mud-related anecdotes to share? I’d love to hear from you.

  1. This is too cute! I love the muddy handprints on his back in that last shot, lol. We haven’t gotten that muddy here yet, but my 4-year old likes to make “mudberry pies”, neatly in cups with a spoon and all, she’s a neat freak.

    I still remember how much fun I had making mud pies as a kid – it was something that could engross us for hours. Definitely will have to keep that in mind for the Bean as she grows… :)
