Make Mud Prints

Mud Prints - Media Banner Image.jpg

Get creative on damp days, using the mud as your paint to create wintery works of art.


What you will need:

  • A piece of paper
  • Clipboard (one that can be cleaned after is best)

How to:

Clip your paper onto your clipboard and take it with you on a muddy walk. Try dipping leaves, rocks or pinecones in the mud and then pressing them onto your paper like a stamp. Try making a print of your muddy wellies by placing your clipboard on the ground and stepping on the paper very gently. You can even make muddy hand prints!

    Lodge Lake is one of the city's ‘on-line’ balancing lakes. It was created in 1981 by building a dam across the Loughton Brook. This holds back water as flow rates in the brook increase, helping to prevent flooding in downstream areas. The lake is perfect for a short outing - a gentle walk around the lake edge takes about 30 minutes - with plenty of interest on and off the water year-round.
