Mud Pie Kitchen Play

Did you ever make mud pies when you were little? I loved making them, and playing in the mud in general. I remember spending many a summer afternoon sitting in our rock garden trying to make pools and rivers in the soil. Messy play is so important to child development. As the weather has been so nice of late we have been spending most of our afternoons outside. I have been setting up a mud pie kitchen for BB to play with. It has been a huge hit.

Make sure you follow my  outside activity board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later. 

To set up a mud pie kitchen you will need:

  • Old pots and pans
  • Cutlery
  • Water
  • Bowls
  • Soil

It doesn’t take much to set up. I simply put out some old bowls, pans, child friendly cutlery out for BB. I filled a couple of bowls with some grass and flowers.

When BB came out after his nap he was a little unsure at first. After I showed him what to do he was off and having a blast.

When it came to tidy up time I got s big bucket of water for us to wash the bowls and things. Which turned into a soup making session with BB adding leaves and mixing it all up. It did still lead to a clean pots and pans, so it really was a win win situation.

He likes to make everyone sit down and serves us all part of his mud pies.

Now when ever we are outside BB goes to the basket where we store all the stuff, takes some things out and starts up a mud pie kitchen.
