Mini Mud Kitchen
Ideal for increasing social and motor skills, alongside providing real, creative opportunities for using and applying measuring elements of maths and science through fun play, a Mini Mud Kitchen is an essential item for any EYFS and KS1 outdoor area. It’s also a fun way of encouraging creative and investigative play for any age group… even older children and adults, as everyone loves the chance to mix, experiment and concoct natural potions outdoors! It certainly provides opportunities to develop learning through exploration and investigation. A perfect way of incorporating the philosophy of learning through STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), by promoting opportunities for discovery by enabling pupils to solve real life challenges.
Messy play outdoors also provides an ideal environment for children to develop their imaginations and creativity. It also provides an effective platform for learners to develop their personal, social and communicative skills, as they play and discover together, increasing their inter-personal and collaborative skills. Children will naturally discover how the properties of materials can change, as well as immerse themselves in real life, hands-on measuring and weighing during purposeful play.
A smaller, but robust and popular edition of our Mud Kitchen, this mini, but ample, version boasts an attractive, natural timber work surface with raised cooker hobs to place pans on and fun knobs encouraging role play. The sturdy, stainless-steel basin is perfect for messy play outdoors and easy to clean up afterwards. There is an ample, useful, open storage space underneath and a multitude of well-placed, handy hooks that provide a home for both utensils and all those pots and pans, or provide a useful and effective place to hang signs and the children’s own mud menus.
This Mini Mud Kitchen is a great alternative for use in smaller or low budget messy play areas.
