Our mud kitchen


Our mud kitchen is now full of donated saucepans, pots and dishes. The children are having great fun, totally absorbed mixing and making mud pies. Mud kitchens provide something quite different to a soil digging patch, whilst also being much more easily managed.  A mud kitchen includes elements of the much-loved home corner and cooking from indoor play, which are then hugely enriched through the special nature of being outside.  Mud kitchens work well all year round, and will be used as a core element of  our continuous provision outside. During the Spring pots of  bulbs and herbs will be added to the area.

    This is so wonderful. My daughter got so excited when she saw this picture. Question: How much sun does an area like this need?

      Thank-you for your comment. The area is quite shaded with a large tree , but catches the morning sun-shine to dry the mud.
