First you gather mud, then make mud bricks and construct these delightful mud houses.

This! This is a great idea. Make a portable mud patch. You can move it around and it is easy for kids to play in and around it. Great idea.

Make mud soup! They will have a blast gathering ingredients for this muddy delight. A whole lot of imaginative play in this idea.

Make a mud kitchen and let your kids play and play. It is simply perfect. Nothing fancy, just a bit of mud and open-ended opportunities.

If you want to take things a step further make a mudpie station. Good messy fun.

Painting with mud? Yes! You really should check this out. They made a paint recipe with mud and are sharing it with all of us. Super fun and colorful mud art.

A wonderful way to play with mud and art at the same time. You really must see these. There is a wonderful mud hedgehog with sticks and a muddy snail with shells. You can put out all types of natural materials for the kids to use.

You totally need to do some of these!  Yes, it will be messy, but it will be memorable experience as well.
