Mud Pies

With all the lovely rain we have had over the past few weeks, the ground is quite soggy...especially in the kids little 'secret' corner of the yard. This little spot is hidden behind the shed right up against the back shed. The kids love it, because grown ups very rarely venture too close down there.
They make cubby's and climb the tank and (famously round here) paint the wall of the brand new shed in mud.
Why 'famously'

Well, settle in and I'll tell you LOL

Our yard backs onto a church. We had noticed people looking into our yard and smiling. We figured it was because the kids were leaving toys about, and well, it was church...people were feeling all God-like and smiley!?!?


The kids had used mud, and their hands to create 'art' on our brand new shed. They had packed mud on in places to hold flowers and sticks. The faces they had painted were HUGE and SO funny....

And Mick was FURIOUS!

Anyways...the kids have been spending a fair few hours lately down in 'their' spot. Filling trucks,
Making soup,

And having SO much good clean fun.

Perfume for mother's day anyone????

awwwwwwww that brings back so many memories. I used to actually eat my mud pies when I was little (or so mum said)

A little dirt never hurt! My 2 have been finding the mud also only they strip off and roll in it! At least they know to take their clothes off first! LOL

So much fun. Our four older one can't wait for our snow to melt so they too can start playing outside. They make wonderful creations with mud and I'm sure our youngest will be joining them in the muddy fun very soon.
