On May 31, 2012, Mystic Aquarium's 3- to 5-year-old Sea Schoolers got muddy in honor of International Mud Day. With the Sea School year coming to a close, the students culminated their dirt, worm and gardening lessons by celebrating the annual event—recognized worldwide on June 29—in their Sea School Green, an outdoor learning space specially designed for preschool learners.
While children today do not get outside and get dirty like generations before, the Sea Schoolers had a messy, sensory experience playing in the mud, making mud pies and painting with mud. Sponsored by the World Forum Foundation's Nature Action Collaborative for Children, International Mud Day connects people with the natural world, instills an appreciation for exploring the outdoors and lets children know that it's okay to get dirty.
Mystic Aquarium's Sea School is the nation's first and only aquarium-based licensed preschool program.
