Mud Day: Wednesday 29 June
Every year Muddy
and celebrates International
Mud Day. Playing with
natural materials encourages a
connection with nature, giving a positive effect on well-being,
learning and development.
Our Muddy Faces Mud Pack grows
jam-packed full of ideas, photos, examples, risk assessments and, of
course, our inspiring Making a
Mud Kitchen book.
We are proud to say our Mud Pack has
become truly international, having been translated by inspired practitioners in countries
across the world – it’s now available in English, German, Hungarian,
Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Welsh.

is great fun too!

Arnold, Forest School Coordinator at Mile Cross Primary School who won
last month's competition. She said "The children worked as a large team
over several weeks and developed their communication skills
whilst burning off lots of energy. How wonderful it is to spend time in
the woods". Above is the winning entry.
Our new website is
up and running. It is should be quicker to load and has a much
better search function. It has links to our social media pages
and is responsive, making it easier to view on mobile devices.
Over the coming weeks, we will be adding activities and information
that you can download for free. If you notice anything unusual
