The Mud Kitchen

Mud Kitchen - An Everyday Story

Mud Kitchen - An Everyday StoryI really wanted to show you our new mud kitchen. This is the first time we have had an outdoor kitchen and Jack and Sarah are absolutely LOVING it!

It’s so beautifully made. I ordered it from a small business in Port Macquarie called Natural Handmade Beads and Blocks (They don’t have a website, just their Facebook page). The standard kitchen is 500mm high (from the ground to the bench) but they were more than happy to custom make it a little higher (650mm) for me. Now it is the perfect height for my two very enthusiastic outdoor chefs.

The kitchen has a working tap which can be easily connected to a hose, a sink, hooks for hanging pots and utensils, 4 rubber pads to use as hot plates, knobs which spin and my favourite part, the beautiful natural branch across the top to finish it beautifully.

I am really glad too that they were happy to make it taller for me. I can really see this kitchen getting a lot of use for a long time to come. Jack and Sarah play everyday….and it’s still winter!! I can’t wait to see what wonderfully messy play they create when it’s actually warm outside 🙂

  1. Yes! Outdoor kitchen’s for the win!! 😀
    My 3.5 year old is OBSESSED with cooking for the past 1.5 years, so we cook outside (and inside) every day. Mud, sand and leaves. (Sometimes dried lentils or small beans – we have monkeys where we live, so have to be careful or they take over the kitchen! ). She loves using her scissors to “chop” the “herbs” for her concoctions. Pure fun! She gets “lost” in her kitchen for hours.

    Thanks for all the brilliant posts!

    1. My kids do too. The games they make up are just wonderful. I think I might add some old scissors for them to chop some herbs. Would be fun for them to have their own herb garden growing – I might have to look up what are some really hardy herbs that will take all the love and attention 😀

      1. What a good idea Kate! My daughter would just love having her very own herbs growing in her kitchen. ?

    I love the mud kitchen. Does the company have a website I only found their face book page thanks

    1. No sorry, they only have a Facebook page at the moment.

  3. LOVE! I’ve always wanted a mud kitchen for the kids.

    1. I’m pretty sure you and hubby could make one! Jode from Mummy Musings and Mayhem made an awesome one with pallets. The girls would love to help too 🙂

  4. Wow, certainly looks like fun! That would get a lot of use at my house, too!

  5. Winter ? Actually warm outside!!??? Lucky. Winter here is -40 with wind at times. It’s a beautiful kitchen though. I should build on myself this weekend. Thanks for the inspiring idea!

    1. Hahaha yeah it’s not quite that cold…. although we did get a tiny spattering of snow the other day which we were all just a little too excited about 🙂 Our average winter temperature is about 5-10 during the day which is pretty cold for Australia. You must be in Canada 🙂

  6. I love your blog and instagram. So informative. I hadn’t even heard or thought of an outdoor kitchen before, but it sounds excellent. My two year old would love this. She always wants water etc in her indoor kitchen and I get bored of mopping up the mess everyday! We’re in rural Italy so think we might go with the building one ourself idea! Thanks for all your inspirations.
