Muddly Puddly Laboratory was born when their son was given a mud kitchen for his first birthday. Now, they were drawn outside more and more, digging for dirt, and foraging for fallen seed pods and other natural treasure to use as ingredients in their kitchen. And the children were calmer and felt freer out in the open. Something about this just felt right, which is why their play ideas incorporate their outdoor space and its natural materials almost all the time.
Owner, Avvy, is an early years STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) communicator by profession. Her two little Muddly Puddlies are aged 2 and 5. They love creating things, imaginative play, making mudcakes, potions, experiments, books, wheels, unicorns, and puddles.
Our play ideas will often have a STEM component being highlighted as Avvy is an advoated for laying down the foundation for developing a STEM mindset in the early years, so that our children can have a better opportunity to be problem solvers, change makers, and active participants in a rapidly changing planet. MakeMUD products are also eco-conscious, with a strong connection to the beauty and importance of the natural world, and they hope this encourages the next generation of inspired, caring and cognisant humans to take care of the wild that was inside them from the very beginning.
