The terrific weather has us wanting to spend every possible moment outdoors. Consider taking kitchen play outside and creating a mud pie kitchen for the little ones like the one Meg created.
You don't need anything fancy; just a work surface and some basic tools -- a muffin tin, play pots and pans, utensils and a big bucket of water. Dig up some dirt and let them get to work. I can't wait to set up a mud pie kitchen for the kids this weekend. Anyone planning to do the same? For more photos of Meg's mud pie kitchen, check out her blog Elsie Marley.
