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!
I did a video tutorial of this build, please take a moment to watch before you tackle this project:
