The children at Portland House have been spending lots of time mixing up a treat in their new state of the art Mud Kitchen! They have been making mud pies and mud soup and even some mud birthday cakes! Mud provides a fantastic sensory experience and provides endless options for experimentation and discovery about materials and textures. Mud connects the children directly with the natural world and inspires creativity with the children while helping with their physical development. All the staff and children are really excited about the plans to develop the rest of the garden.
