International Mud Day
Mud. It can be a nuisance. It is everywhere as soon as it rains. This sticky, slippery substance is not likely to offer any benefits. Wrong. The creators of International Mud Day want to prove it. Mud is essential to the outdoors. The outdoors are a great place for exercise and fresh air, which are two of the greatest things in the world. It doesn’t matter if we get our hands dirty. Research has shown that being in contact with bacteria can help build immunity. This is in contrast to living in a sterile environment which can make our bodies vulnerable. You can get hundreds of dollars worth of mud masks or spa baths, not to mention all the minerals that mud can contain. What are you waiting to do? Let’s get dirty!
International Mud Day was created by people who wanted to make the Earth’s children feel closer. International Mud Day was founded in 2009 by Gillian McAuliffe, from Australia, and Bishnu Bhatta, from Nepal. They discussed ways to foster a sense of community and an appreciation for the natural world. This collaboration has inspired families, educators, and children from all over the world, from the United States to Nepal to Holland, to celebrate International Mud Day each year on June 29. We all look alike, regardless of our age, race, or religion.
Although there are many ways to celebrate International Mud Day you can only do one thing: get dirty. Children will love this day, and it can be great fun for them. Making mud cakes or sculptures is a great activity for International Mud Day. You can easily adjust the consistency of the clay mud by adding water or earth to it. This will allow you to create whatever you like, and enjoy lots of laughter and family time. Another way to get the most out of this day is to create a homemade mud pit with a blow-up swimming pool. This is a great way to create a unique experience. Once you have a small, inflatable pool, all you need to do is fill it up with mud. The mud can be easily mixed with water and then your children can splash around in the water. It is important that you are ready to get rid of your children’s clothes after they have been taken off.
