3 reviews for Mud Kitchens and Beyond

  1. EYFS Forum website

    “What I particularly liked about this book is the way in which each mud kitchen activity is introduced by an adult led ‘provocation’ which gives children the background and some knowledge about what they could do or make in their mud kitchen. There is then the opportunity for open ended learning as the children explore the activity further in their own way.”

  2. Practical Pre-School Awards Tester

    “An excellent book covering the use of mud kitchens and much more. Clear, detailed activities covering the implementation, setting and also why and how children might be learning. It has helped the children become imaginative and creative. We are just starting with an outdoor kitchen and the range of ideas was superb! Lots of imagination, role play and language has come out within the children’s play by using this book and the ideas. Hugely recommend this book as a resource for other pre-schools and the price is great as well.”
