Mud rocks and thankfully living in a village in the countryside means we have lots of it to hand on a wet day! This was at the start of the walk and everything got a lot messier from here on in. In fact the washing machine was put on as soon as we got home!

Such a great opportunity for language development. Talking about the sounds the mud makes and how it feels under foot. Or even in your hands if you are feeling brave enough.

We have a very clay based soil here which makes the mud a smooth and slippy texture. We often dig it out of the ground and use it to make clay faces and creations. Crafting straight from the Earth!

Today's play, meets the following EYFS Prime and specific areas:
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development
  • Understanding the World

Please tell me.... how does a child kick the same door frame, with the same foot, twice in one day? TWICE!!
It's not like the house has changed in any way! It didn't jump out on him! But never the less he did kick the frame twice and so we ended up in A&E Sunday evening having x-rays and getting strapped up. It was very quick compared to previous visits (I have 2 boys.... say no more) and the worst part was trying to find a parking space for the fracture clinic the next day. 

Can you see the brake? It had to be shown to me too lol! I would never make a Dr!

So 2 days on crutches and a funny shoe and buddy strapping for 3 weeks. Then back for an x-ray.
This time we will make sure we leave plenty of parking time!
