Why We Are MAD For Mud Kitchens!

by Bump, Baby & You

If you’re looking for a fantastic, educational, dynamic outdoor activity for your little one, have you considered getting a mud kitchen?

Yup, that’s right… a mud kitchen!

With the rise in popularity of forest schools, Montessori learning, and general outdoor play, mud kitchens have experienced a boom too. Fairly small, educationally useful, easy to position in most gardens regardless of size, durable, and of course devoid of plastic and flashing lights (a positive for our parents who love wooden toys), mud kitchens are a fantastic outdoor activity. My sons forest school group and nursery both have mud kitchens, and he gets tonnes of enjoyment out of them. All you need is some natural detritus; mud, soil.
