This week the Toddler’s have been exploring mud, discovering how we can use it in different ways.
We mixed mud and water to create some, “Paint”, and the children really enjoyed making marks using the mud, paintbrushes and their hands, whilst talking about what they painted. Some of the other children explored their imagination and enjoyed making potions and gloopy mixes using the mud and leaves which they found in the garden.
