Let’s make a mud mosaic!

Here's an amazing mud mosaic idea for you!View image slideshow

Wet and sloppy, cold and muddy. Dry, hard and crumbly mud. Soft, sandy mud. Oooey gooey mud!  

What to do:

  • Step 1: Explore your area to look for natural materials like sticks, rocks, flowers, leaves, bark, flower caps and nuts.  

  • Step 2: Find some dirt and add some water. Use a bucket for mixing if needed.

  • Step 3: Mix it together until it turns into mud.

  • Step 4: Plop your mud mixture onto a flat surface.  

  • Step 5: Flatten it out and start adding the natural materials you’ve collected.

Check out the slideshow for some amazing examples of mud mosaics!


  • Use sticks to make a frame or rocks as a border.  
  • Create a pattern or a picture and get muddy!  
  • Take a photo ‘before it dries’ and ‘after it dries’. Notice what happens to mud when it dries.
