Who remembers getting out in the garden and making mud pies when they were little? I know I loved making mud pies when I was young. It might be why I love gardening so much, getting out there and getting my hands dirty!
Mud Kitchens are an awesome way to encourage your kids to get outside and get their hands dirty. They don't need to be fancy and certainly don't need to cost much. Nothing beats the simplicity and character of creating your own unique kitchen from scrounged, found and recycled items.
