Just add water for mud magic!

MakeMUD is a unique range of sensory bases that let you create naturally muddy play experiences at home, without any of the hassle or mess.

Just like making mud, all it needs are water and your own two hands to make a soft and luscious, earth-filled playdough, ready for play.

The first of its kind, MakeMUD was scientifically developed in 2019 as a soil-based playdough powder by Avvy Banerjee, an early years STEM specialist. Since its launch, MakeMUD has expanded to include natural mud slimes and fizzes to its sensory range, and continues to be loved by mudmaking wildlings all over Australia and beyond.

A "clean" way to play with mud

Although nothing compares to playing with fresh mud outside, MakeMUD is chemically tested to ensure its soil/sand content is free of harmful components, and heat-treated to remove all live matter for safety and longevity of play. One pouch of MakeMUD’s natural formula contains everything you need (except water!) to make playdough, slime or fizz, allowing stress-free enjoyment of creating and playing together.



Instant nature play, indoors or outdoors

MakeMUD allows children to explore the rich, organic earthiness of real mud anytime, anywhere. Whether it's outdoors on a warm day, or inside an apartment building in winter, anyone can start playing with nature through the quick and convenient magic of adding water to a specially formulated mud mix. Perfect for small world play, sensory trays, potions, mud pies, and wild imaginations of all little mud makers.

Sustainable play: Minimising food ingredients

Unlike other playdough and sensory play industries, the main ingredient of MakeMUD is soil or sand, reducing the need to use food ingredients for play. So much of the earth is farmed to grow food for humans, and there is a worldwide responsibility to minimise food waste.

Muddly Puddly Laboratory is committed to providing an alternative, sustainable option for sensory play by being soil-based. The little flour used is certified organic, which hopefully supports farming practices that are kinder to the planet. All packaging is certified 100% compostable.

Benefits of sensory play

Our natural MakeMUD products provide wonderfully tactile and sensory play experiences, supporting cognitive growth, fine and gross motor skills, scientific thinking and problem solving skills, language development, mindfulness, and creativity.

Children can experiment with adding their own dried petals, bioglitter, colours, fragrance, herbs, spices... with MakeMUD, the child is the creator!

Welcome to Muddly Puddly Laboratory

I'm Avvy, and here are my own two Muddly Puddlies aged 3 and 6. We live in Melbourne, Australia, and are all about connecting to our natural environment through science, art, mess and magic.

I am an early years STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) communicator by profession, and it is very handy to have my two wildlings reinforce the teachings of open-ended play through creativity, whimsy, imagination, culture, and connection to nature.

Thank you for visiting, and for supporting environmentally sustainable, creative and FUN play ideas, as well as our MakeMUD business.
