What is International Mud Day?

In 2008, Gillian McAuliffe, Pedagogista and Founder of Bold Park Community School in Perth, Australia, found herself at the World Forum for Early Childhood Care and Education. There, she had a discussion with a colleague from Nepal about the challenges children face when playing together in the mud. On the plane returning from the Forum, McAuliffe contemplated the obstacles that stand between many children and their ability to enjoy the simple, natural act of playing in the mud.

Challenges such as cultural preferences for cleanliness, lack of access to disposable clothing that can be dirtied and proper cleaning supplies, or dry, sandy geography not conducive to muddy conditions.

When she returned to school in Perth, she shared her experience with a large group of 7 and 8-year-olds. They, in turn, decided to fundraise to purchase clothing for Nepalese children, so that they could all play in the mud together.

Their efforts raised over $1000, which paid for new clothing for children in Bishnu, Nepal, where a Mud Day event was held for Panchkhal orphanage. Now, every year on June 29th, children from all over the world celebrate International Mud Day as a way to connect and celebrate the natural joys of playing in the mud!
