Child Development Center Celebrates Summer, Nature, and the Outdoors

June 26, 2012

Children at the Cerro Coso Child Development Center celebrated summer, nature, and the outdoors by getting really muddy during International Mud Day on Friday, June 29th. It may look like one giant muddy mess but mud play offers unique tactile sensory experiences that are vital to a child's developing brain. It also helps children to develop their hand-eye coordination and learn about cause and effect. Research shows that kids who play in the dirt (including wet dirt) develop stronger immune systems that can pave the way for better health throughout their adult lives. But most importantly, mud play is great fun!
