Children get busy in the mud kitchen

This is like being let loose in your mom’s kitchen with all the ingredients in the cupboard and the cooking utensils.

Look out for the budding chemists, chefs and investigators in the photos above. Also note the general well being these children display. This is real learning in a real environment – who could ask for more
