Back in the wintertime I happened upon this interesting little book at Goodwill for only .50cents. I thought it seemed kind of cute and funny so I purchased it and took it home. Little did I know that it would be one of my girls' favorite things for outside imaginative play!
Oh yes, it is a recipe book using mud! Among other things...
The book is quite literally what it says... Using everyday items found in your yard you can make breads, soups, puddings and more for you and your dolly. Seriously, do NOT eat them. Yuck. But, honestly...so cute and Maggie has taken this book so seriously. I have watched them roast strange items on a "spit" and mix up various delicious-looking muddy concoctions.
So, if you are looking for something new to convince your littles to go outside...mud will usually work! Dress for a mess and happy "cooking!"
The book is available on Amazon in a hardback...
