With warm temperatures on the way the girls are getting anxious to play in the water and mud again. So I need to "dust" off the mud kitchen set up and get ir ready to be played with again.
Here is a before shot.
Super dark but you are looking at their tool crate all a mess, the two little tables with their main pot on top and their mud "pit" mostly filled in with rocks. I need to clean out the tool crate, rake out the rocks and set up a few new things that I have set aside for them.
Here are some after shots.
The tool crate. Still full and kind of messy looking but there are metal pans, plastic cutting board, plastic watering cans, big water jugs (old juice jugs) and a cup filled with stirring utensils.
The two little tables hold her big stirring pot, a few tree cookies that act as plates and a container underneath with a tight fitting lid that she keeps "treasures" in that can be used later in mud creations. The black plastic tray is just another mixing/serving container.
But the big change is the hooks and new pans that we added.
This is a great way to make sure they dry well and don't rust as quickly. It is also really easy for Sam to hang them up, making clean up a breeze. I am hoping to get one more little table to put underneath these pots as another working space.
The girls played in their new space for quite a while today and loved it! I don't think the 50+ degree weather that we had today will stick around, I am sure we will get at least one more cold spell, but the mud kitchen is ready for whenever spring officially arrives!
The Nitty Gritty!
So we made that goal at the beginning of the year to get outside everyday for some play time and so far we are succeeding. What is great is that now we are heading into the easy seasons! I am super excited for long hours in the backyard and whole days where we barely go inside at all. What a clean house I will have!!! Are you getting in some outdoor play everyday?
