There is only one possible pretend play activity to do during Pie Week and that is mud pies. I am ashamed to admit that this is the first time we’ve done this as a family. I know – call myself a kids activity blogger and we’ve never even made mud pies. I’ve thought about it lots over the Summer but never really fancied the mess. You have to be in the right mood!
Of course Mud Pies need a very special outdoor kitchen. I have wanted to make a cardboard box kitchen for ages too. The girls love their wooden kitchen, brought by Santa last Christmas, but there is no way I would let them take it outside, or sling a load of mud on it – not after all the effort Santa put into making it on Christmas Eve anyway – he definitely deserved his mince pie! So it seemed a great opportunity to combine the two things. I will show how we made the cardboard box kitchen in more detail in another post.
