We finished Lily’s makeover by installing her outside mud kitchen. Originally the space beside the garage was an overgrown bare concrete slab. But with a little muscle to clean off a thin layer of concrete (thanks Eric) and expose some lovely pavers + a a good old sweep and pressure wash, it became the perfect spot for Lily to set up shop and play!
- We created a mud kitchen for Lily using scrap wood and an old sink, which can double as a water play station by just adding a sink plug. I accessorized the kitchen with a variety of baskets, kitchen storage containers + utensils, filled with lots of greenery, rocks, water and sand. The perfect ingredients for all sorts of potions and fun.
- On the walls we added an old mirror for visual effect and a chalkboard where Lily can draw and write out her recipes. :)
- We used an old pallet to create a simple tree shape decoration, which will double as a trellis for a pot of climbing beans to grow up.
- And finally we added bottle babies – a fabulous open ended ‘toy’ for strength building, color and light play, and pretty much anything else you want to use them for.
Annnnd of course my little assistants were on hand to help make sure the mud kitchen was in good working order before we left. ;)
