Muddy play

 The mud pit is one of my favourite aspects of our playground.  As an early childhood educator I am always amazed and inspired at the creative play that occurs in this sensory area.  The 2013 group explored it for the first time today and I believe it has quickly become a firm favourite of theirs as well.

 The mud pit is an area where children can work independently

 Or collaboratively

 Children can explore and immerse themselves as little....

Or as thoroughly as the like.

And what better way to start our introduction to mud play than with old fashioned mud pies

 I'm looking forward to where the children take this new found interest throughout the year.
