Mud Kitchens

With guidance from the EYFS and drawing on our combined years of childcare experience we can have found the ultimate in messy play and it comes in the form of a mud kitchen! At many of our nurseries you’ll find children happily filling, pouring, emptying, transferring, mixing, throwing, splatting, splashing, shredding and separating in amongst their very own mud kitchens.

A mud kitchen includes elements from indoor play cooking but experiences are hugely enriched through the special nature of being outside and the ability to mix soil, water and other natural materials. Children can see physical transformations but are encouraged to use their imagination to really build on their experiences and subsequently develop expression and language.
