Working with kids, from early childhood to now

Slinging mud at walls: A lovely woman named Caz Phillips just sent this photo of a project she did with a school in Sussex, UK, in 2010

Since the first edition of Dig Your Hands in the Dirt, the number of teachers slinging mud at schools has grown — probably exponentially. I would love to collect new photos and projects for the next edition. If you’re making beautiful things with kids, mud, and/or communities, please do get in touch, and/or post your project and pictures.

“Play is serious business, “as Erik Erickson said — and as anyone knows who has played their way out of childhood. What better medium than mud to restore to work our starved capacities for celebration, for joy, for sharing and cooperation — all the things that we first learned at play?
