Mud Day at Annmarie Set June 25

Mud Day

Mud Day at Annmarie GardenWhat’s more fun for a kid than playing in the mud? On June 25, 2017, Annmarie Sculpture Garden and Art Center will celebrate International Mud Day with a special muddy program from noon to 4 pm. Members can attend the event for free; cost is $5 for non-members; free for kids 4 years old and younger.

International Mud Day brings together children of all ages from all over the world to do what comes naturally to kids, but is often impossible because of the cultural norm toward cleanliness, a lack of outdoor space, or even a lack of clothing that can be worn for this kind of play. In fact, there are some places in the world where the ground is sand, so kids don’t get a chance to play in mud.

At Annmarie Garden, the day will include plenty of family-friendly muddy mayhem. Guests will get the chance to enjoy squishy art projects, play in a kitchen of mud, paint with mud, create a terrarium, and finally cavort in a giant mud pit.

The event will be held rain or shine (it’s going to be messy, so a little rain won’t make a difference). No pets will be allowed, and there is no smoking at Annmarie Garden.

Snack vendors will be at the event. Guests are encouraged to bring a picnic and lawn chairs. There will be rinse-off stations, but playing in the mud is messy business. Bring extra clothes and be ready for a muddy car ride home.

This is event is sponsored by Great Mills Trading Post, Carolyn and Gene McHugh, Evelyn and Vincent Hungerford, and Wentworth Nursery.
