Get back to your childhood memories and think of what was the best thing you liked doing when you were a toddler? May be you liked being buried in sands and build sand castles, or play street games with your fellow mates or splash mud all over your body and dance in the rain.
After all childhood is the best part of every person’s life and we all experience everything that gets stored in our memories forever. It’s this time only when the joy of being dirty and absolutely filthy is enjoyed by all.
But, once the childhood time is gone, we tend to miss it and expect to experience that in our babies. So let’s give you all a few tips on the messy adventures your toddlers can do that can be funny and picture perfect moments at the same time.
CELEBRATE THE HOLI FESTIVAL IN INDIA
The world’s calendar is filled with messy festivals, but nothing like the Hindu Festival of Colors in India celebrated during the Spring season, known as Holi.
Kids and adults run joyfully through the streets hurling gulal (color powder) and dumping buckets of dyed water on each other. A rainbow riot that no one can escape out from.
Your kids can enjoy every bit of it, while they paint themselves with different colors. And don’t worry it is a celebration they’d remember for a lifetime.
SQUASHING IN THE SABETO MUDPOOL, FIJI
It would be impossible to read anything about Fiji without coming across words like pure or pristine or beautiful. But, guess what? This paradise island has a little dirty secret for all of us – The Sabeto Hot Springs.
Home to three of the geothermal Sulphur pools and one mud pit, this is the most happening outdoor mud spa in The Fiji. You can get to wrestle, splash yourself with mud or indulge in some mud-wrestling.
Mum and Dad out there – Don’t be afraid, the mud is therapeutic and besides that it all washes off in the springs.
BAREFOOT WALKING IN CORNWALL, UNITED KINGDOM
Going barefoot is a universal delight to enjoy – mud flattening, sand smashing and leaf crunching while you walk. In recognition to this UK’s National Trust has set up its first ever dedicated barefoot walking trail.

LEARNING TO COOK IN ROME, ITALY
Rome is all about Pizzas. The entire city is packed with places where you can have a scrumptious pizza. But why buy your little one, when they can make their own?
