10 mud activities for kids

June 29th is international mud day! let your kids get muddy with these super fun mud activities for kids!

Dirty kids are really no stranger to our house.  Our kids play hard and get dirty, a lot.  What they don’t typically get to play in is mud which pretty much means mud activities for kids are about the coolest thing ever!

I swear they can sniff it out since it’s a treat when I let them get nice and muddy.  I actually caught the 2 youngest under the trampoline where all the grass is dead digging in the mud the other day.  They had buckets, shovels, and all kinds of other tools.

Normally, I would stop them (since they were really doing a number on our year- even if it was under the trampoline), but I decided to let it go that day.  They were under there for over an hour.  An hour of entertaining themselves without an electronic device is a win in my book!

June 29th is International Mud Day!  Can you believe a day actually exists for mud?  Well, it does!

International Mud Day is a day for children all over the world to celebrate nature, and the fun of making a mess by getting really muddy.  Is there a better excuse to let your kids get nice and muddy??!!
