The Muddy Puddle Teacher gives you everything you need to create an engaging, active and inclusive outdoor curriculum for your Early Years setting.

Based on the well-loved Muddy Puddle Teacher Approach and following the Three Muddy M’s – mother nature, mental health and getting more kids moving – this handbook is jam-packed with simple outdoor activities for every season. Whether you’re a forest school enthusiast or just getting started in taking your teaching outside, there are plenty of inspiring ideas to benefit children and save you hours of preparation time.

The activities in this book span key EYFS topics as well as PSHE themes, from muddy maths and literacy to muddy meditation and yoga. All ideas use natural or upcycled materials that are easy to source, including making bamboo cane storyboards, clay 3D shapes and teaching spelling with leaves. Perfectly adaptable to all outdoor settings, the games and activities are ideal for inspiring a love of nature and innovating your Early Years practice in an affordable, sustainable way.
