Mud Kitchens
When Grandad saw a 'mud'kitchen/play kitchen, for little adults he thought he could make a better job of it  and at a more realistic price, so he built his first small mud kitchen, one that his grandchildren would've just loved to play with whn they were little.  It turned out brilliantly; little oven, hob, log clock, log handles and a removable blackboard so the parent/teacher could write on it easily. The word soon got around and he started making them in larger versions for schools and Reception outdoor learning areas. It gives Grandad great joy to see kiddies with their dried pasta, rice, beads, leaves, earth, making creations and furiously talking and engaging with each other. Ofsted love it and full marks to the school!

Grandad's Workshop will design and build your mud kitchen to suit the client and the available space. We have many satisfied customers including a 4 year old girl who just adores making mud pies and mud puddings for her family and friends, and a class of Reception children who use one of their kitchens to get messy with mud and water, and another kitchen to learn to pour and measure, using dried pasta, rice and beans. The possibilities are endless and the learning opportunities are aplenty! It doesn't stop at kitchens either - with a few tweaks Grandad could make you a Writing Station, a Music Centre, a Maths Station or maybe a mini Grandad's Workshop bench for those creative little hands!
