Muddy play is such an open ended opportunity for learning. It enables children to explore the elements and introduces them to nature. It strengthens their immune system while also developing their social skills.
"Yes. Can I have some of your leaves? My dragon is very hungry."
It is in moments like this that children share their ideas and passions in the honest way that adults often struggle with. There is no hesitation in their plans. No fear of judgement. Children accept that anything is possible and are open to letting an idea that a friend is exploring enter their imagination.
"You can have all my leaves!! Can I pet your dragon? Is he green?"
Just imagine what we could achieve in this world if every idea or passion for change was welcomed without judgement or expectation. Ideas can change the world.
