New Video About Outdoor Challenges for Young Children (Fun Mud Day)

Children and teachers play in various obstacle course challenges.

“Fun Mud Day” is an event held at Eastern’s Child and Family Development Resource Center (CFDRC) that challenges preschoolers, toddlers, and their teachers and families to try a variety of physical challenges. In a new CECE video about the 2019 Fun Mud Day event, Kinesiology and Physical Education professors Darren Robert and Michelle Ferrer describe some of the more easily replicated elements and explain how they support children’s gross motor skills, feelings of competence and confidence, understanding of safety, and willingness to take safe risks.
