I have never met children who can be so entertained by dirt and a shovel and maybe a bucket. They have bikes and balls and bats and hoops but they love to dig in the dirt. A particular favorite is 'mud balls' princess and her friends love to make them and do heaven knows what. But they make them. They also like making worm nests and digging for bugs and worms. They usually come in completely covered in dirt. Somehow they usually have dirt on their faces like they were eating it.

They also prefer to dig in dirt as opposed to sand. In the park they are into the sand about as much as other kids but in the dirt they are golden. Last summer when we were putting up a fence the kids just dug in the dirt outside pretty much all day.

What did your kids do? What did you do?
