If a picture paints a thousand words then you know that your children are going to have fun, fun and more fun these April school holidays when the extraordinary Festival of Mud returns to delight children of all ages at Orphanage Park, Millswood on April 27th between 10am to 3pm.
Deck out your junior achievers in "never mind if it gets dirty clothes" and get ready to snap loads of memories as they squelch their way through oozing, mega mud, interactive nature play, cubby building (you know, building forts), clay based art making and geocaching (hide and seek with a GPS). Yes, I know, I had to look it up too.
Get ready for a day they'll talk about for weeks. Maybe you'll be washing out clothes for weeks, but as I used to say as a homeschool mum, " the more dirty they were, the more I knew that they had fun, were happy and learning healthy, outdoor skills."
