A mud kitchen is an outdoor play kitchen for children to explore the properties of mud. Perhaps you remember making mud pies as a child, making dirt holes and filling them with water to see what happened next.
The mud kitchen is rich in learning experiences including learning the rules of good hygiene, exploring the properties of mud, manipulating mud and tools with our fingers, measuring, imaginative play building on the children's own experiences, finding out about bugs, problem solving, co-operation with others and sharing. The children come up with ideas that the staff may not have considered.
We started ours in Summer 2014. As you can see from the pictures the children have had a lot of fun playing and learning about the different things they can do with mud!
