Mud sticks

It's our first time playing ...

We have spent a lot of time at the farm the past few months.
The boys don't have a lot of toys or play equipment there but they do have plenty of red dirt, energy and imagination.

It rained.
So I learnt ... !
Don't pray for rain if you are going to complain about the mud~ Proverb
The boys love dirt & mud. They love messy sensory play.

"The world is mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful."Author: E.E. Cummings

It had rained overnight, they added to the puddles with barrowfils of water .

Joel dragged a large box from behind the shed and got the small plastic chairs ...entirely his own idea. ...yes it's a boat !!

Later the same day they made 'chocolate dirt mudpies for mummy' = Sam

Plastic garden shovels ;) & childsize wheelbarrows

(Of course tractor play)

(holding the shovel for Grandpa)

My Father in law loves it that I let them play in dirt & mud ...except he has yet to volunteer to do the washing. I am not kidding the water was exactly the colour of the mud.

This was our creek crossing the same day ...really shallow actually where I crossed.
Thankfully it is a long walk to the creek for 4 yr olds and it isn't always flowing.

PS We do own gum boots but they were wet inside LOL !

Never miss a post
