The name Muddy Boots Blog evolved out of a trademark characteristic of The Middle Child, who always has a dirty face. His level of enjoyment of any experience can always be measured by how dirty his face is!
The Middle Child is a magnet for mud, something which often leaves the rest of us in fits of giggles.
Thinking about that I realised that most kids enjoy getting dirty, muddy and generally, grubby, when playing outdoors. The more fun they have, the dirtier they are.
I figured if mud was such a delight to kids, I needed to go with it! As for the boots…whether they’re hiking boots, biking boots or just regular old wellies to help manage that mud, they’re a South African family travel must-have!
More than just focusing on South African family travel and leisure, the Muddy Boots Blog also looks at the modern lifestyle.
I am a vegetarian who is deeply committed to the plight of our planet. I only use chemical-free, natural products in my home, and all my beauty products are cruelty-free.
We are avid recyclers, compost-makers and try to limit the amount of waste that comes into our home – including mindless plastic toys often given to the kids.
Because I am so passionate about conservation, preserving our natural heritage and raising my children in as an environmentally-friendly way as possible, the Muddy Boots Blog as a brand shares these principles.
The Muddy Boots Blog brand values:
I aim to work with ethical, responsible brands that share these values, helping you make informed choices about your South African family travel, leisure and lifestyle activities.
