Today is International Mud Day. Let's get down and dirty!!
To celebrate this very special day, all you need is some water and some dirt. Mix them together, and you're ready to have some fun!
International Mud Day is for everyone, both children, and the child inside of us. Set aside the electronic games. Turn off the television. Set down the smart phone, along with the apps. The purpose of this day is to help children, by bringing them back outdoors to learn about and enjoy nature, along with all it has to offer.

The Origin of International Mud Day:
In Nepal, where International Mud Day began, the intention of the original event was to enrich the lives of 58 orphans, by getting them outdoors to enjoy the environment. After splashing in the mud, these children's moods and attitudes were much improved.
This day was first created at a World Forum in 2009, by Gillian McAuliffe from Australia, and Bishnu Bhatta from Nepal.
This special day is sponsored by the World Forum Foundation.
