- If you’re brave enough, let the kids make a mud puddle and play in the mud. My boys love playing in the mud. I just leave the kiddie pool out and they wash up with the hose when they’re finished.
- Read "Mud" by Mary Lyn Ray (point out the green grass poking up through the mud.)
- Place soil in a plastic tub. Let the kids help add water to the soil to make mud. Let them explore the mud with small plastic gardening tools.
- While the kids are gone, mix grass seed with the mud. After a few days, the kids will notice the green grass beginning to poke through just like the story. Let the grass grow!
snack idea: chocolate pudding with chocolate cookie crumbs (I put chocolate graham crackers in the food processor for fine crumbs).
