“Screen Free” weekend challenge No 8 – Make a mud castle!

With all the rain around at the moment there seems to be mud everywhere! And mud is the perfect material for this week’s Going Wild “screen free” weekend challenge – Make a mud castle.  No rules; it could be a palace for a mud sprite or a dungeon for a mud monster.  We want to see turrets, moats, bridges, balustrades anything that will make it magnificent!


Find the biggest patch of muddiest mud you can find, but  don’t start digging up the precious flowers that don’t look much at this time of year, or the bulbs that are desperately trying to poke their heads out of the soil, otherwise you’ll be in deep trouble.

Check your mud patch is a suitable spot for a castle, test the mud’s building consistency and get stuck in….don’t forget to tweet photos of your fantastic constructions with the #screenfree and #goingwildnet for the chance to win a signed copy of a Going Wild book.
