Mud Kitchen Kids & Loose Parts Play  

“There is little more important in our physical world than earth and water and they are truly intriguing things, especially when they interact. ” 

–Jan White, Outdoor Early Education Consultant

What is a Mud Kitchen? 

 

In a world where children often have many rules and restrictions, a mud kitchen is an environment where children are self-directed and free to lead with their own ideas. 

 

The intrinsic qualities of a mud kitchen include surroundings rich in sensory motor opportunities that spark imagination, creativity, exploration, and experimentation. 

 

Activities are freely chosen and naturally motivating without the need of a clear beginning or ending. 

 

The child is actively learning with complete autonomy and agency over their materials and designs; free of the pressure to “get it right.”
