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.
1. Sink: aka a silver mixing bowl
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.
We’ve also made a water wall… I’ll be popping the blog post up next week so do follow so you don’t miss it! It’s SUPER EASY and QUICK to make too ✔️
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…

Brilliant! We made our own one recently!, Not anywhere near as awesome as this but actually the children love it all the same. #coolmumclub

I have already been over to read this post and the wheels in my head have been turning! Those proper gorgeous mud kitchens online are amazing but SOOOO expensive! I’d love to make a little mud kitchen for the girls…watch this space!
Thanks for sharing with #coolmumclub

Oooooh I’ll look out for it! Think you’ll be done before us, we have a pallet one in progress… It’s slow because there are just so many options!

Such a great idea. I love the pallet ones but we don’t have the diy skills to match. This one is more achievable for us. Im sure my girls would live it. #thelinkylist

I love the idea of a makeshift mud kitchen as I’m not sure I’m ever going to get around to making a pinterest-worthy one! I might have to get out that old sandpit! Thanks for the inspiration lovely #coolmumclub xx
