The day after our Messy Play Date Avery told me she wanted to do some messy play. I didn't really have anything planned or have materials ready to go but the critter pit from the Messy Play Date was still set up in the back yard (it was one of her favorites and, truthfully, I wasn't really sure what to do with a swimming pool full of dirt). So, I filled her water table with water and let her turn the critter pit into a mud pit.
We added in a muffin tin, bowl, spoon, and measuring cup and she had so much fun playing in the mud and making mud cupcakes (with grass sprinkles on top, of course).
We've left it out and played in it quite a few times, it has definitely become one of her favorite messy play activities!
