We have had so much rain this past week and you know what that means? MUD PLAY!
MUD PLAY INCREASES BRAIN ACTIVITY – When children play with mud, they use all their senses, resulting in a highly stimulated and active brain.
MUD PLAY INCREASES PHYSICAL ACTIVITY – When children play outdoors, and in mud, the incidental movement and physical activity increases, helping children maintain a healthy lifestyle and develop their physical literacy.
MUD PLAY BUILDS CREATIVITY – The open-ended nature of mud play is perfect for the developing brain. There is no end to the creations, ideas and games children will invent. During this type of unstructured, outdoor play, children are not only exercising but are building their ability to form ideas, problem solve, and think critically, as well as be innovative and inventive.
