Joy Avenue Preschool Mud Kitchen, Mount Evelyn
Outdoor play and connecting with nature are important components of our preschool program. Mud play is an amazing, open ended activity that stimulates brain activity, supports physical development, engages the senses and is lots of great, messy fun. We would love to add a mud kitchen to our playground with a working water pump to enable us to engage in endless learning opportunities and wonderful, messy nature play all year round.
The major costs associated with the project are
Construction of the mud kitchen including benches, sink, pipes, and shelving. A hand operated water pump and associated costs to connect to our water tank. We would also like to purchase equipment for the children to utilize in the mud kitchen to enhance their play experience such as kitchen utensils, buckets, shovels, containers and wash tubs.
The $1,000 grant will be used
Purchase of the mud kitchen and water pump.
How they raise the rest of the funding
If we require more funds for our mud kitchen, we have several fundraising events planned this year including a pie drive and Bunnings BBQ that could contribute to any outstanding costs.
