Digging Patches

Digging (or mud) patches give children another medium to explore, encouraging imaginative and constructive, physical play. Mud play is not only fun, it has as much potential for learning as sand play and water play. These ‘patches’ can be constructed in a corner and integrated with plants and/or vegetable patches. It is recommended that digging patches are located away from the sandpit.

If there isn’t room for a digging patch in your playground, mud in a large tub, clam shell or trough can be used and of course this can be used outside or in!
