Mud kitchens sound like a good idea, but we don't have much space or enough stuff to put one together. Any suggestions
A. Start small.
A plastic ice cream bucket, some yogurt containers and some plastic silverware are enough to get the fun started. Then, as you are able, build a countertop and sink like shown here with four crates and a board. Remember, it doesn't have to be perfect or beautiful... just fun.
