You can’t beat imaginary and sensory play mixed together. And who doesn’t love a mud pie! The children will spend hours in the garden mixing mud potions and cooking up a foliage feast for pretend play. It’s so much fun.
Mud, mud, glorious mud! We took some kitchen utensils to the forest and spent an afternoon of mud cake baking by the stream. I cut the heads off of a wilting vase of flowers that we had at home to use as our cake decorations.
