Beyond Mud Pies: Mud Bricks

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

The classic mud pie needs no improving, but there may be days when your kids want to get more creative with their dirty work. That's when old kitchen supplies come in handy, for these building blocks or for a more decorative variation: Mud Cupcakes.


  • Ice cube tray
  • Mud
  • Spoon


For a load of toy-size bricks, fill an ice cube tray with mud and compress each block with the back of a spoon. Depending upon the consistency of the mud, removing the bricks from the tray may be easier if they're first allowed to bake in the sun for an hour or so.
