DIY Mud Kitchen in One Weekend!

DIY Mud Kitchen in One Weekend!

We love everything about this DIY Mud Kitchen from fellow blogger Hands On As We Grow!

If you're anything like me, some of these can be so expensive! This plain simply is genius and cost effective and gets those senses going - all things we love.

DIY Mud Kitchen

If you have a toddler or preschooler, you are probably familiar with the fact that they love to get dirty.

My 2 year old and 4 year old are always asking to do projects that involved making a mess so when my husband proposed the idea of a mud kitchen for them outdoors I was definitely on board.

The mud kitchen we ended up with looks amazing and was actually really simple to build.

Here’s what you’ll need to make a mud kitchen:

  • Wood (we used two 2×4’s and four 1×6’s) – $9
  • Pallets – two half pallets or one full pallet that you can cut in half (can often find for free)
  • Wood Screws
  • 10 Pavers (you may have a few extra around your yard or purchase for around $3 each)
  • Sink (price varies greatly — you can use bins or try a Habitat ReStore for a cheap option)
  • Drain strainer – $4
  • Flowers (a fun finishing touch — you could also have your kids plant seeds)

First, we built the side table which just involved creating a table top by cutting two of the 1x6x8 boards in half leaving four equal length boards and we used scrap book from a fence repair for the cross sections and then used the 2×4’s as legs.

Next we made the longer table which was a little more complicated because you have to account for the sink. Again, we used the 1×6 boards to make the table top and measured around the sink to leave a drop-in hole for it. You may want two separate holes if you’re using bins. If you’re using an actual sink it should come with brackets and screws to attach it to the wood.

Next we attached the half pallets to each side of the main sink table with wood screws. And then added a bottom to the top section of the pallet so that we could plant some flowers in them. We decided that if we ever need to re-plant something, we’d have the kids plant seeds so they can watch the different stages of seeds to seedlings to plants.image03

We chose to leave the side table detached from the main sink table so that we could move it around to different areas of the yard or even move it to use as a kitchen island to keep the mud kitchen layout evolving.

We then laid out the pavers to make a floor and added a water-loving plant under the sink to absorb a lot of the drippings.

Finally, the fun part! A wagon full of sand and dirt that made for some amazing mud pies — and mud muffins and mud salads and mud coffee — the play was endless. Mission accomplished! I was pleasantly surprised by how easy this was to put together and for a very low cost as well.

Spyweb Cyber is the best when it comes to recovery of stolen and lost cryptocurrency funds, I’m a living witness to their success. Some months back, I invested some money into a cryptocurrency investment platform and I was asked to pay 20% to withdraw my profits, I did some research and found out it was a scam to defraud me of my money. I didn’t know bitcoin could be recovered until my colleague at work told me about Spyweb. I contacted spyweb and in the space of 48 hours, all the money invested in this fake investment platform was fully recovered. I’m truly grateful to Spyweb and I want to share this with anyone who must have had the same experience. You can easily contact Spyweb at:

Recording success in Cryptocurrency, Bitcoin is not just buying and holding till when bitcoin sky-rocks, this has been longed abolished by intelligent traders ,mostly now that bitcoin bull is still controlling the market after successfully defended the $20,000 support level once again ad this is likely to trigger a possible move towards $40,000 resistance area However , it’s is best advice you find a working strategy by hub/daily signals that works well in other to accumulate and grow a very strong portfolio ahead. I have been trading with Mr Bernie doran daily signals and strategy, on his platform, and his guidance makes trading less stressful and more profit despite the recent fluctuations. I was able to easily increase my portfolio in just 3weeks of trading with his daily signals, growing my 0.9 BTC to 2.9BTC. Mr Bernie’s daily signals are very accurate and yields a great positive return on investment. I really enjoy trading with him and I’m still trading with him, He is available to give assistance to anyone who love crypto trading and beginners in bitcoin investment , I would suggest you contact him on WhatsApp : + 1424(285)-0682 or Telegram : bernie_fx for inquiries , bitcoin is taking over the world
