Mud, mud glorious mud

Our mud kitchen in the outdoor area offers great messy fun as well as providing a whole variety of different learning opportunities including sensory, imaginative and exploratory play. One day it’s making a worm house , the next it’s making  dinner for friends, the possibilities are endless.
