Nursery Mud Mud Mud!

30 November 2017

The recent weather has meant our outdoor learning area has become a bit muddy. It has been amazing to see how the children have coped with this more challenging surface and they have impressed us so much with their tenacity to climb up the slippery muddy slope practising their social skills such as cooperation, negotiation and communication as they encouraged and helped each other climb the slope.

 Playing with the mud, water, and other natural materials such as pebbles, leaves, or grass provides children with endless possibilities for learning and fun. The rich, engaging sensory play children have while playing with mud allows them to express their creativity while also enhancing their fine motor skills. Emergent math and science skills are practised as children make comparisons, solve problems and measure and count ingredients for their mud pies.  It also brings the opportunity to discover new things like wiggly worms!

The open-ended nature of mud encourages creative thinking and, since there are no ‘right’ answer and no mistakes, the children gain confidence and self-esteem. Mud play is inclusive of all children. It allows children to play at their own developmental level. Some children might focus on the sensory experience whereas other children may have more specific goals in mind for their mud play. However, perhaps the greatest benefit of mud play is the memories being created!
