Mud kitchens are a fairly new addition to schools thanks to the unwavering popularity of the mud pies that all children love to make outside.
The best mud kitchen should allow children the creative freedom to express themselves, experiment with materials and tools without the worry of things breaking or getting too messy. All our sets and accessories are manufactured in the UK and made from premium quality Scandinavian Redwood meaning they stand up to the test of time and hundreds of play sessions.
Roleplay is an important part of early years learning, helping children to think about things from different perspectives and consider new situations. Garden mud kitchens enable roleplay activities like cooking, lab experiments, story-telling, and geographic discovery.
Sensory and emotional play is important alongside numeracy, literacy and science at this stage in development. A mud kitchen not only fulfils this need but can support activities like counting, trial-and-error experiments, learning shapes and understanding patterns in a fun way that keeps kids engaged.
A simple, small mud kitchen such as theMini Mud Kitchen is a great way to start with younger children whilst keeping them focused. If children are working in groups the 5 Station Mud Kitchen for toddlers allows them to work side by side, with ample storage options and removable parts.
