There have been so many fabulous mud kitchens shared in our Pre-K Fun Facebook group over the last few years.
Mud kitchens provide Children the opportunity to explore nature through dramatic play. They provide children with sensory experiences, opportunities to cooperate with others, as well as many new ways to explore language.
Mud kitchens can be made from a variety of recycled materials, and can be as elaborate or as simple as you want. Don't pass up the opportunity to stock them with real cooking utensils, pots, and pans.
In addition to mud, you can also include other loose parts for "Ingredients" such as: Twigs, Flowers, Rocks, Seeds and cut wood slices.
I hope you enjoy this collection of Outdoor Kitchens from our group, as well as inspiration from around the web. Be sure to click on the links to be re-directed to the source for additional information and directions. Happy Cooking (with mud)!

Welcome to my Provider Spotlight series. Join me each month as I feature childcare providers from our FB Community. Throughout this series you will have an opportunity to get to know a little more about our members, as well as explore unique childcare programs across the U.S and in other countries.
How long have you been a provider and why did you become one?
Working with preschoolers has been a part of my life and have worked with preschoolers for 44 years. I worked in the church children’s department as an aid when I was eleven and began teaching when I was fifteen in VBS. I took on the preschool class full-time after VBS, and then became the church’s preschool director when I was 18. From there, I served in various churches as we would transfer and move.
