Mud pies

Have fun in the mud!

What you need

  • Disposable aluminium tray

  • Thick mud!

  • Water

  • Pebbles, shells, sticks or leaves for pie filling

What to do

  1. Line the tray with a layer of the thick mud. Push the mud into the tray and around the edge with your fingertips.

  2. Pile your chosen filling into the pie.

  3. Add some water to your mud to make it runny and then drizzle it through your hand onto the top of your pie. You can make strips or wriggles or if you like you can completely cover the filling.
