Pallet timber mud kitchen

A mud kitchen is a great way to give kids a fun place to get messy and use their imagination, and can be an affordable build using pallets.

The project


I custom build these mud kitchens for schools, childcare centres and people's backyards. They are great for young children with vibrant imaginations and children who just love playing outside. They are also a fantastic teaching and learning tool as well. 


An adult-sized version where the sink is fully functional can be ideal for preparing food in an entertainment area, or for fishermen who need to clean their catch.
