I have many fond childhood summertime memories. One of which is concocting mud creations ~ beautiful pies and cakes made from mud, sand, leaves and berries. As soon as I saw the idea for a mud pie kitchen on one of my favorite blogs, Rhythm of the Home, I started gathering supplies.
Our mud pie kitchen has been up for a month and the kids have been spending lots of time, playing and creating. Would you like to see? Follow me. Our mud pie kitchen is hidden in a corner of the yard.
I purchased two crates from Michaels for about $13.00 (using a coupon of course!). The rest of the items I found at Good Will or around the house. I probably spent around $20 for everything.
In the hanging wire baskets you can find stones and shells. The kids are using the bottom basket to place bowls and such as they dry.
The shelf has pegs, where you can dry plants, or hang supplies. The top shelf has a basket with tongs, spoons, etc. and provides extra space.
One of the kids favorite kitchen items is a mortar and pestle.
I had the perfect container for dirt, just sitting in the garage. Do you know what the container was original used for? If so, please don’t tell my kids ~ and yes I cleaned it with bleach! : )I planted some good smelling herbs (mint, lavender, and basil) for the kids to use. I have since discovered that we have a groundhog in our yard who is also thankful for the small herb garden.
I just love summertime and mud pies!
