If you are looking to expand the FUN in your outdoor setting, I would highly suggest you think about making your own MUD KITCHEN.
Take a breath. Your children won’t become roly- polies. If they do, you just get out the soap and water. More fun! They, and later you, are going to enjoy this new addition to your outdoor setting.
You begin with a frame.
A view of the bottom shelve.
We purchased new wood for the frame.
On other areas of the table we use recycled deck wood from the deck of a friend that was being taken down.
When adding in the deck wood, we predrilled the holes because the seasoned deck wood would crack when adding the screws to hold it in place.
Next came the top of the mud kitchen with removable sensory tubs.
Finally, we were ready for the back support.
Play items for the kitchen came from Great Grandma Lena’s kitchen and discount stores in the area.
Out came the dirt.
Which became our mud or dirt source.
Sand and our choice of patio block were added.
Some final fill.
Let the FUN begin.
