THE BIG POOL FULL OF MUD:
THE TUB OF DIRT FOR DIGGING OUT TREASURE:
A SMALLER POOL OF MUD...perfect for mud pies according to Logan:
CLEAN MUD...which ironically both boys declared "gross":
There was also a table for building clay sculptures, but niether Logan or Gavin made it past the pools and bowls of mud before all the clay was used up... Mud wins over clay I guess - the messier the better!
They also had a hose and a bucket of water for cleaning up. Gavin, being a big fan of water and hoses, considered this just another fun activity!
I took this last picture of Logan thinking we were done and that he couldn't get any muddier...
...I was WAY wrong on both counts! Niether boy was done playing...and Logan DID get dirtier. I wish I had a picture, but I'd already put the camera away and was working on cleaning up Gavin when Logan decided to dump a bucket of mud down the front of his shirt. On purpose of course! Vanessa, the librarian, and I had to tag team Logan's clean up. She hosed out his clothes while I scrubbed him down with water from the bucket!
I never knew there was an International Mud Day, but I'm glad I do now! I'd love to celebrate it again the next time it rolls around...but I'm not sure if our fearless librarians will ever be daring enough to tackle that project again! And I wouldn't blame them! So, I'm sending out a big thank you to everyone who pulled this fun experience off - what a perfect opportunity to let boys be boys!
