PHOTO HUNTERS #13 --DIRTY


PHOTO HUNTERS HOME
The PHOTO HUNTERS theme this week is dirty and I knew where I would find my “dirty” photos. hehehehehe

I was teaching at a preschool/daycare for awhile and these kids loved to play in the mud and of course I encouraged it. It did not have to be a hot summer day to play with mud. . . on those days, I turned the hose on and each child brought a container of some kind and somethng to stir with. After they got some water from me, they “went to it.”

Those arent’t the photos I will be showing today since I was usually manning the hose, I couldn’t take photo too. Those particular memories are embedded in my heart instead!

Today, I offer winter mud play for the “dirty” theme. Ü The boys loved playing in the mud as much as the girls. Did they get dirty? YUP! That’s a part of growing up. They said they were glad I was their teacher because I let them play in the mud whenever we were out in the play yard. I am glad they liked it too since mud is a part of my "rock" unit!

Not a care in the world, fun in the mud. I love their jackets, nice colors! :)

Looks like they had a great time. Most parents wouldn't let their children play in the mud, but children love to experience it. Great photos. Wish my kids had a teacher like you when they were growing up. A little soap and water does wonders.

I have some great memories of my sisters and I playing in the mud when we were kids. I especially remember the "mud brownies" and trying to convince the youngest of us that they really were brownies. He he.

Great photos!

Those photos are so cute. We saw a little girl at church that had on a shirt that said, "I play in the dirt." Isn't that great? Thanks for coming to see my dirt at Pollywog Creek, too! Blessings!

Joy said...

What a fun teacher you are! Were the parents ok with their kids getting dirty? LOL! Great shots!

crazy working mom said...

Looks like great fun! :)
Thanks a bunch for dropping by my "dirty" photo.

A little background info on my photo. On our children's first birthday we made a "regular" cake for the guests and they each had a chocolate cake made by grandma which they had the pleasure of demolishing all to themselves. It made for great photo ops to say the least. :)

Angela said...

Oh yes, mud is the dirtiest!

eastcoastlife said...

Yeah, getting dirty is part of growing up! The kids had great fun.

Larry said...

mucking in the mud is the best - great photos - have a wonderful weekend

Sunshine said...

great moment ... sure the kids love it and hope it didn't end up being a laundry nightmare for mommy. Kids today spend too much time indoor playing video games anyway.


thanx for dropping by ourlilspace.com. Look forward to your next photo submission.

Kids and dirty just go together :)

Thanks for stopping by. I've often said, if I ever have to leave Hawaii I would live in Vancouver. It is beautiful there.

Aloha,

Very nice. The preschool where I used to work renovated their play spaces a couple of years ago and one of the things they put in each of the play areas (2s, 3s and 4s) is a space for children to play in the dirt and plant. Getting dirty is such an important part of growing up.

Whirlwind said...

Nice and muddy fun! Can't get any better than that!

Connie@Little Red Hearts From God said...

Life is good.... dirty and mud.. doesn't get better than that...

Hummie said...

That is really classic dirty!! Wonderful! Sadly, I never got to play in the mud.
I missed your entry too, but this week I didn't find a lot of time for the photohunt. Thanks for dropping by!
Have a great week.

Winter mud play how interesting. We don't have winter here but it rains most of the time so we got quite a lot of mud :) Thanks for visiting my dirty
