OUR Little Oaks love experiencing sand, soil and mud - they use all their senses when playing with mud, which is a wonderful art medium as it can be moulded and decorated and it responds differently to sand, clay or play-dough. Playing in the mud helps children to learn and develop and to connect with nature.

Did you know that there is an International Mud Day? This celebration started in 2008 in Nepal and Australia and is designed to connect people with nature. In Nepal, Mud Day marks the beginning of the rice-growing season and is a celebration of nature providing the ideal place to plant rice that will later sustain the community. So, get your hands and feet dirty and have fun playing in the mud.
