Children usually love jumping in muddy puddles, and some adults still enjoy jumping in them! Do you?

No sadly I don't.

But if I saw Adults doing it, I would have a big smile, I'm too up-tight
for puddles.
It would be nice not to be.
I would think it is a lot of fun.

p.s. I think I will do it one day when I'm with all my family....Just to shock the hell out of them.
My grand kids would love it, I know! :)
Totally depends on my mood. Some days I love it and some days I hate it. Here in Cairns I find that by the end of the wet season I'm sick of the sight of muddy puddles. But I do always LOVE watching my kids enjoy playing in puddles - muddy or otherwise!
Actually I discourage my children from doing it too, I just think it is too much work to clean their clothes. In fact, my children feel icky after their clothes dirty so they nag me crazy till I change them. So jumping in muddy puddles is not for our family.
When my kids were young, I would tell them:

''Go play in the park, and if you come back clean your in trouble''.

I'm old school, and in those day kids could go play and be safe, and have the best time....so I gave them permission to do just that.I would buy second hand clothes, and just let them go.One found a Mulberry tree, and purple was the order of the day! face hands feet you name it.

That is pretty awesome. I remember we used to get muddy and dirty and we used to play in the rain a lot.
I liked them as a child, but not as an adult.
Unfortunately we don't get too many big puddles here in Perth, but if we did I think I'd have fun jumping in them...as long as I was wearing some good waterproof boots!
As I kid I used to try and jump over all the puddles. Just not the muddy puddle type.
I LOVE jumping in puddles :) And as you can see from the photo, so does my son! I encourage him to get as dirty as possible and to spend a lot of time playing outside. Yes it makes a fair amount of washing but I would far rather do the washing and have a happy and healthy boy (and Mummy!). My husband really dislikes getting dirty and winces when he just thinks about it, so I'm pleased that in this regard our son takes after me.
:) yes
LOL -I can no longer jump

Ah but then you could still paddle and kick in a puddle.... not quite as much fun as jumping maybe but better than nothing :)
Loved to jump in puddles as a kid! The deeper, & muddier, the better! Water attracted me greatly, ANY type! Much to the chagrin of my parents! After all, I'm a Pisces!

Now I will, if what I'm wearing is ok to do so!
Even at my age, there's still a kid inside who enjoys doing kid things!
