Hand in Hand Learning Land

Our Nature Explore Classroom continues to be a special refuge for learning, sharing, and making discoveries.

Our Messy Materials area has a brand-new mud kitchen structure complete with a sink, stove, oven and working area to make special concoctions. Our children have spent countless hours making their unique recipes at the kitchen structure using ingredients that included dirt, small stones, lavender, chalk, plants from the children’s garden, water, and their imaginations.

Containers of colored water in transparent containers with faucets are available daily for the children to use at the mud kitchen. Additionally, they retrieve water from our old-fashioned water pump to refill their water containers. The addition of the new feature, our wooden mud kitchen station is clearly the highlight of our Nature Explore Outdoor Classroom. The children have used mud kitchen daily since we have added it to our Messy Materials area!
