We are currently working on developing our outdoor area (there is a lot to do!) and I was thrilled to receive this fabulous Utility Kitchen from Newby Leisure!
The kitchen includes shelving to store utilities and hooks to hand play pots and pans. If you are lucky enough to be able to purchase one, I would suggest that you ask if you can fix the hooks yourself rather than having them pre-fixed, so that you can ensure they are at the right height for your pans / utensils. The sturdy rubber ‘sink’ is removable, so it’s easy to clean.
I thought I would share a few of the ways we’ve enjoyed playing with it so far…
Cooking with Sand
We don’t have a lovely, wooden sand tray and are currently ‘making do’ with a red ladybird tray to store our sand. I thought it would make sense to keep this near the kitchen to allow the children to make use of it during their ‘cooking play’ if they wish. They love it!
Adding Water to the Sand
Very sloppy indeed! We also added the petals and leaves from some old flowers to this too…
Water, leaves and petals… no sand in these concoctions…
Mud, Petals and Sand
We also added some silicone cake cases…
We are all loving it and can’t wait to explore it further! I really can’t recommend Newby Leisure as a company enough! 🙂
Thanks for reading!
Would love you to come & say hello! 🙂
