Mud Pie Kitchen Inspiration

We love to feature play kitchens here on Apartment Therapy, but we haven't given quite as much space to outdoor play kitchens — otherwise known as mud pie kitchens. There's a lot of inspiration out there on the web, so we rounded up 10 fantastic kitchens to excite your creativity for summer.

Many of the bloggers who posted their kitchens also included step by step instructions for building a mud pie kitchen. You'll find suggestions for upcycling old materials, encouraging imaginative play, and creating a space where kids can get dirty and explore nature.

Have you created a mud pie kitchen, or an outdoor play kitchen? Tell us what you've done in the comments!
