The local community helped us to construct this mud kitchen for our playground. A mud kitchen can be messy but it can also be great fun, what child doesn’t love mixing up a mud pie? For younger children, mud kitchens can also provide a whole variety of different learning opportunities including sensory, imaginative, creative and exploratory play, covering a number of different areas of the EYFS framework. Being outdoors gives children the chance to connect and learn about nature, to be creative and invent their own role play games and can even allow opportunities for early maths and science activities. We want children to be able to transfer their indoor skills and apply them to different resources and experiences that are strongly linked to nature in their outdoor space.
