Active Boundaries

We are proud to launch our new concept and range and share the pedagogy behind it.

NEW & EXCLUSIVE to Muddy Faces:

Active Boundaries Range

We are VERY excited to share with you our work on Active Boundaries and to celebrate the success since its launch with a massive giveaway worth over £600.00!

For anyone who knows Muddy Faces, you know we are dedicated to enabling children to play, learn and 'just be' in the outdoors. We spent a lot of time researching and working with experts exploring how children use and move around their outdoor environments. This work is shared in our FREE Outdoor Hub with a dedicated section about Active Boundaries, delving into why children are driven to pass OVER, UNDER & THROUGH boundaries.

From this deep understanding we developed a quality range of sustainable resources all made in our workshops in Derbyshire; lovely wooden resources that enable children to explore the opportunities of their space; stiles to climb over, squeezes to go under and gates to go through. The range is quickly becoming a bestseller for us, which we are super proud about 😊.

Active Boundaries

graphic with the word 'over' with a dynamic arrow curving over it

Children in the Early Years (and of all ages) have an endless fascination with exploring boundaries; given the opportunity they will consistently cross over, under or through them.

The world is full of boundaries and edges, not only physical but also social, all of which need to be identified, explored and played with to be understood.
