Kids can squish a little history between their toes at the Rancho's delightfully muddy festival. Activities include adobe brick-making, plastering the horno, constructing a mini-adobe home, running mud relay races, throwing a clay pot, exploring archaeology, and examining critters that live in mud.
There are also “clean” activities, including fossil-making, Mud Mania trivia, paper crafts, and live bluegrass music throughout the afternoon.
Shoes are required, except in the mud pit, and guests are encouraged to wear old clothes and bring a towel plus a change of attire for the ride home.
“De-mudding” stations are available for limited clean up; showers will not be available.
