Thank you Pip for sharing with us your beautiful images and tips.
MUD PIE KITCHEN!!
Kenzie spent the last few weeks at Pre-School last month, mixing up potions and mud pies in the garden. He started to do this at home as well but we really didn't have the stuff to fully engage him in this and it was a little frustrating for him.
After reading a lovely post last week Let the children play , I had been thinking about where I could add this fun space to our garden.
Sunday mornings are Car boot sale day in our little village and i found so may bargains this morning! Lots of very nice wooden items, animals and some beads and buttons. But i also found everything i needed for the Mud Pie Kitchen. All at great prices.
£3 for a jam making pan, £1.40 for a plastic stacking basket thing and one stall was selling everything for 10p!! so i had wooden spoons and forks, little silver cups and plates, a tall pot, a wooden carving to hang on the wall..... it was clearly meant to be.
Kenzie practiced some cutting with his scissors cutting up his Tomato plants to put in his soup.
All this fun for a few pounds!!! Would love to hear about your Mud Pie Kitchens if you have one.... or if you decide to make one!!
Guest Blogger Bio: Pip from Worms Eye View
I am a mother of 2 boys! I also Childmind for lots of little people and LOVE my job! We spend a lot of time outside, enjoying all Nature has to share with us, going for walks, visiting the local farm animals in the fields and stopping at the park for a play! I can not imagine doing any other job! This blog is a little insight in to what we do each day, life as a mother and life as a Childminder. I will focus on more natural play activities, LOTS of Art projects and occasionally touch on Living with Autism in your family as my eldest son has Aspergers.
And if you haven't had enough of outdoor play kitchens yet, head on over to Squiggle Mum where Catherine's girls have been busy getting dirty in their new outdoor kitchen.
