Children at Bright Horizons Bumpers Day Nursery and Preschool in Burnaston, Derbyshire recently began investigating their new mud kitchen.
Staff set up the mud kitchen to extended the children’s outdoor learning opportunities and exploration. The children have enjoyed making a mess and using their imagination to be creative in the mud.
“The children have had a great time exploring the mud kitchen,” said Nursery Manager Juli Walker-Jones. “We look forward to using it again in the future to enhance a variety of the children’s skills.”
Mud kitchens provide many benefits for young children including through personal and social development as a result of giggling after the mud moves. They can also improve communication and language as the children use words to play in and describe the mud. A mud kitchen can also aid physical development, as the children use their hands to make marks in the mud.
