What do children do with mud?

Two children playing in the mud

Children all over the world know what to do with mud! Saturday is International Mud Day and your children will know how to celebrate if you give them a chance.

Watch this short video of two children who headed to the woods to make chocolate. Most people can’t stop laughing the first time they watch this clip, but at least two people I know found themselves in tears. As you watch, notice how richly these children are experiencing the three prime areas of learning and development, and how they demonstrate the characteristics of effective learning.

P.S. If you can’t access YouTube, you can also watch it on our website.
