This in-person event is part of the annual Mud Day Challenge, a month-long play outside challenge you can do anywhere! Complete a series of muddy adventures and activities to collect this year’s pack of mystical mud monsters.

Logging Muddy Minutes between June 1st and June 29th will earn you clues and virtual badges about the characteristics featuring a mess of Mud Monster friends. Go for a Trail Run, take a Nature Hike, visit your local farmers market, dig in your garden, dive into a mud pit, make a mud pie or create a muddy work of art. Log 250 minutes and earn this year’s prize.

Each donation we receive supports Apple Playschools’ Scholarship Program, working towards more equitable access to childcare. Register for the Mud Day Challenge and get 5 Mud Day Mayhem event tickets!
