Let Your Kids Get Dirty!


I stumbled upon this post earlier this morning and fell in love with it.  I am a strong supporter of the local mud pie association and encourage children to learn through their environment. 

Children need to be exposed to a variety of natural elements, textures, lessons, colors, and more by manipulating sand, mud, sticks, leaves, and the natural environment Mother Nature provides.

In my years of mommydom, I have seen the clean freaks and the "pigpens" come and go.  I fall in between those two sects. 

God made children washable for a reason. He also let me have a water hose for easy spray downs. 

Read this article today, go outside, and PLAY:

Make a mud pie.  Decorate it with stones, leaves, and feathers.  Have fun!
