The Benefits of Outdoor Play

**Someone hacked my website last night with a PRIVATE post about mud cakes. Mud cakes, of all things. I was deeply concerned until my daughter confessed that she was the culprit. When did she learn how to post something onto a blog? Seriously, children these days seem to be born with the natural ability to use technology. I read through her short post again and have decide to make it PUBLIC.


Who likes playing outside?


Did you know that being outside with nature has health benefits? If you walk barefoot on the dirt or grass, that is called grounding. Grounding helps relieve stress.

Plus-if you are in the dirt, you can make mud cakes like the one pictured.


Here is the recipe:

1. One cup of dirt

2. Half cup (or more) of water

3. Flower petals and leaves for garnish (Optional)


Mix dirt and water in a bowl. Put the mixture on a plate and add garnishes. Place in the sun to dry.


Have fun!
