Dress appropriately for this one. On your way to your mud source (a few dependable spots below), gather fallen leaves, petals, grasses, anything on the ground that looks interesting. When you reach your mud spot, first find a dry spot to lay out the decorations you’ve gathered. Crumple and shred the bigger leaves into little pieces. Then get to work forming balls of all sizes out of nice, wet, sticky mud. Roll them in your decorative materials and arrange in a tower or a circle – or stick sturdy twigs into them and connect them to each other.
