International Mud Day
Celebrating nature, outdoors, and getting very muddy!
- Anywhere & Everywhere!
International Mud Day aims to connect children around the globe through the earth, by playing in the mud!
International Mud Day is children and early childhood professionals all over the world celebrating nature, outdoors, and mess by getting really muddy.
“We believe it’s okay to get dirty”
The creators of International Mud Day wanted to find a way to help all of the children of the Earth feel closer to each other… and what a better way to do it than through the Earth itself? International Mud Day began in 2009 at a World Forum event, when Gillian McAuliffe from Australia and Bishnu Bhatta from Nepal got together to talk about ways to encourage feelings of community and appreciation for the world around us. The collaboration that followed has inspired educators, children, and families across the globe, from Holland to Nepal to the United States, to celebrate International Mud Day together each year on June 29.
Regardless of age, race and religion, covered in mud, we all look the same!
