What is a mud kitchen?

A mud kitchen is a mini sandbox for children. The mud kitchen is usually used for mudding with sand and water. Small moulds can be used to make sand cakes - similar to the classic sandbox.

Why is a mud kitchen useful?

The mud kitchen promotes and encourages children to play with nature outside. Playing in the mud kitchen offers the opportunity to train social skills and helps children to learn actively through play and, above all, to have fun.
Playing with mud and muck has numerous benefits:
  • promotes creative thinking
  • improves cognitive functions
  • helps build a healthy immune system
  • Playing with the mud kitchen makes children happy

How high should a mud kitchen be?

Stacking two drink or IKEA crates on top of each other gives the homemade mud kitchen a perfect height for playing and squishing while standing. It's comfortable for your child and they can really let off steam while standing up!

From what age is a mud kitchen suitable?

Most manufacturers recommend playing with the mud kitchen from the age of 3. However, many children already play extensively with moulds and sand at the age of one. Our tip: Start with the mini version of the mud kitchen and expand it over time!

How long do children play with the mud kitchen?

Since the mud kitchen is a seasonal toy, it becomes interesting anew every year. Many children enjoy playing with the mud kitchen right up to primary school age.
