We’re in the process of making a proper pallet up cycle mud kitchen for Toddler H, however, in the mean time I’ve put a few bits and pieces together to make a quick mud kitchen so the toddler can enjoy hours of fun outside… We love all toddler garden activities as they’re he best way to tire her out!
Here are a few items to make a fab easy outdoor kitchen. It’s also great if you’re lacking space, or don’t want a permanent kitchen.
We do plan to insert this into the pallet kitchen hubby is making (slowly as we have a billion other jobs to do)
2. A kitchen counter: aka a plastic box or old plastic sand pit!
Use any size you like! I’ve used a sharpie on the top of this old sandpit to make a stove top.
3. Some spoons
I’ve just given her some old spoons from the kitchen! Plates and a sieve/colander are also other great ideas.
4. A saucepan
This plastic saucepan came from nanny’s charity shop haul!
Grass, mud, water, flowers, petals…
I’d recommend showing your toddler how to use a mud kitchen if they haven’t seen one before. Once they know what to do they’ll have hours of fun on their own.
Toddler H loves her makeshift mud kitchen. I can’t wait for her lovely pallet up cycle version to be ready though! I’ve seen so many fab ones on Pinterest.
I’ve a Pinterest board Homemade Garden Toys with loads of ideas on that we’re hoping to make. Most likely over the next few years…
