My big kid and I built a mud kitchen the other day! This is a very doable “DIY in a day,” project, especially if you aren’t solo parenting! Full disclosure, we ordered pizza for supper, there was no time for cooking that day! 

My girl LOVES making mud pies and flower potions and always seems to be leaving a mess everywhere so my hope was that perhaps the mess can be contained a little better with a dedicated play area, not to mention I knew she’d love it! 

The goal for this project was also to use scrap wood or things we had at home! The only thing we bought was some utensils and bowls from our local thrift store. Total spent on this project: $6. Not bad, hey?! I’ll include a shopping list at the end of this post, but we had all these things at home already. 

Anyways, enough of that, here it is! You can view video of the process on my Instagram Highlights HERE.

Here are all the measurements. Feel free to save this photo to print or save it to your Pinterest for later! (Just hover over the top left corner of the image until the Pinterest icon pops up and click on it).

Any questions! Let me know in the comments!

We had all these products/tools at home, but here are the links for your reference. I’m not sure why the Chalk Board paint is priced the way it is, but we got ours at a much more affordable price at Home Hardware.
