Kids got down and dirty in the mud at Reid Park Zoo for "Mud Day".

Kids got to learn about how animals use mud for sun protection and insect repellant.

One of the zoo's educators tells KGUN9 the mud is not just beneficial for animals.

For our kids, they can use mud as a sunscreen too...unplug from technology and play outside more often, says Zoo Educator Andrea Contreras.

From playing in mud pits to making slime and painting with mud, kids got to have fun outside and stay cool.
