Our mud pie kitchen has been in the pipe-line for a while. Preparations began here and this week it was open for business. It was slow-burner at first but after a few days sloppy mud creations were in full swing. This week was all about seeing what kind of play Finn and Harper would generate from this new feature in our backyard. As always my two surprise and impress me with how engrossed they become in this type of creative play. Soups have been boiled on the stove, mud smoothies were blended, mud juices were poured and after all the cooking was done Harper created a sink where the dishes could be washed up.
I wasn’t sure how Mr clean and tidy would go with all of this but I am happy to report he has been quite keen to make a few of his own creations. Of coarse Harper took to it all like a duck to water. Her enthusiam has lead to a little taste testing though, which may be taking things a little too far I think. New rule Harps: Mud pie kitchen creations are for looking at and admiring, NOT eating!
