Last week we made an outside mud kitchen for the girls. They spent three solid hours cooking mud pies, mud soup, mud cupcakes with violets and buttercups on top. They took a non mud smoothie break for a few minutes and continued with their kitchen. Later, when they came in they each took a turn in the tub, and again spent forever filling cups and teapots and playing happily. There are never enough sensory experiences with my girls, they could enjoy water play, play-dough, sand, and mud all day long. Good old fashioned fun.
