Stomping in the Mud Play Group is a rich, natural outdoor play environment where children have the opportunity to play outside,
rain or shine ... a chance for preschoolers to 'live in the moment' while learning through play.

Crockpot Corn...Outside!

On a cool Fall day in Victoria what could be a better snack than local corn with freshly made butter. Yes, we made is so easy and lots of fun!

By cutting the corn cobs in half the children can easily peel away the husks.

To make the butter we add about a half cup of whipping cream to a plastic jar with a tight seal and everyone shakes it...and shakes it...(This is when we sing every jumping, hopping and shaking song we can think of)... 

By the time the corn is cooked and cooled the butter will be ready. Adding a few clean marbles will help speed up the process.

The pre-heated crockpot on high was Dianne's brilliant solution to the question of how to cook the corn outside!

With a swirl in the butter snack was ready...

and enjoyed by all...

followed by a lovely forest walk!
