Mud Painting

by Trish Kuffner, author of The Preschooler's Busy Book

Mix a bucket of clean mud, and let your preschool child use it as paint!


Materials

  • Paintbrush
  • Mud

Directions

  1. In a bucket or other container, mix water with some clean dirt or earth (without stones, grass, glass, or any other particles); keep the mud thin.
  2. Give your child a paintbrush and have her dip it into the mud and draw pictures or write words on the sidewalk.
  3. Be prepared: She will most likely use herself as a canvas as well!
  4. Your child will have fun hosing her creations off later, or you can leave them for the next rainfall.
