I know I’m not always a ‘fun’ mum. I make my children finish their dinner, they go to bed early every day and when they see a muddy puddle they know very well to walk around it. Unless of course we are on Peppa Pig’s Muddy Puddle Walk… If you ever needed a great excuse to let the kids splash about and have fun in the mud this is it:
From August 13 – August 19 Australian families are being invited to join their favourite little piggy, Peppa Pig, in a Muddy Puddle Walk to raise funds for Save the Children. By participating in the Muddy Puddle Walk children all across Australia will help support Save The Children’s work to give every last child the chance to learn, play and grow up healthy and happy. Millions of children around the world are currently missing out on this due to factors including lack of access to health and education, abuse and neglect, and humanitarian emergencies. But you can help!
Families can sign up for their own family Muddy Puddly Walk and child care centres and playgroups can join in the fun together. There are rewards for everyone, with surprises from Peppa Pig including certificates and stickers plus magazines, books and DVDs. The FREE Muddy Puddle Walk Fundraising pack will help you get the most out of your walk with fun ideas, activities, tips and it will also guide you as you talk to your children about the work of Save the Children.
Slip on your gumboots, head to your favourite neighbourhood park or outback track and raise some much needed funds for a great cause. Your muddy puddle fun will help give disadvantaged children a brighter future and every little bit helps!
