Mud Week

Since we’re unable to celebrate International Mud Day in the Garden on Saturday, June 27, we’re rolling out Mud Week – a whole week of muddy activities to bring your family a mud-tastic celebration of nature!

Every day from Saturday, June 27 through Friday, July 3 we’ll share a new muddy activity on this page. You can also sign up receive each new activity straight to your inbox every morning here.

This virtual event is designed to be accessible with activities you can do in your own home with materials you likely already have.

Muddy play can be one of the most joyous sensory experiences of childhood. Celebrate International Mud Day by bringing some muddy play to your home by building a muddy play space in your yard, on your patio, in the driveway, or even (gasp!) inside.
