The best part of the kitchen is the sink!  Right?  

My kids have always loved play kitchens, and I’ve built many.  But not having a working sink with real running water always required alot of imagination.

Then I discovered the MUD KITCHEN!!! 

Mud Kitchen Features

  • Real working sink that hooks up to a garden hose
  • Faucet cannot be left on – automatically turns off when not actively in use
  • Drain water can be reused
  • Hooks for storing pots, pans and utensils
  • Removeable “stove” pieces to customize use (ie use as a potting bench or rock cleaning and paint station)
  • Storage shelf
  • Easy to customize and decorate
  • Sturdy construction using time tested methods suitable for outdoor use
  • Cedar flat surfaces will last longer
  • About $50 in new materials to build 
  • Simple construction that most anyone can tackle with a few tools

We LOVE this mud kitchen as is, but I did want to mention my six year old son thought it would make a fantastic fish cleaning station.  He also is washing rocks and painting them.  I could also see this used as a child’s potting bench, serving area for kids, lemonade stand, or wildflower florist station.  The options are endless!
