The beloved nursery school Atlas went to for Pre-K was in need of a mud kitchen, so obviously I volunteered us to make one for them (I can’t help myself). Cue gathering all the scrap wood we own (plus outsourcing a sink and scrap from another co-op family and some bits and bobs from the school too), and coming up with a kick-ass design. Some of the key elements included:
- A large enough workbench for multiple friends to play at, and a height that children of different ages could use it successfully.
- A sink/place where water could be added and used.
- Storage – shelving and a place where hooks could be hung.
- Made from as much reclaimed parts as possible – for the look and the environment.

UPDATE… In the year since it was built and delivered, TPCNS has made it their own 1000 times over. It has become a beloved well-used part of their play space and it’s so exciting to see it pop up on their Instagram feed every now and then.
