Choosing a Mud Kitchen
A Mud Kitchen is a must in an early years setting. Children love to create their own dishes with natural treasures, such as mud, flowers, herbs, stones and sticks. Add recipe cards and create an area where children can be engaged and involved in their play for a long period of time.
With an array of mud kitchens to choose from it can be hard to know what is best. Simple is usually more cost-effective and it is more in the accessories than the actual piece itself.
