The creators of International Mud Day wanted to find a way to help all of the Children of the Earth feel closer to each other...and what better way to do it than through the Earth itself! The day aims to connect children around the world by playing in the mud - because regardless of age, race and religion, covered in mud, we all look the same!

Join others around the globe in a day of splashing, rolling, squishing, sliding, making mud pies and more!

There are many ways your service can celebrate NAIDOC Week this year to recognise diverse cultures and promote a sense of belonging and inclusion - check out some ideas here
