The moment we have been waiting for has arrived. No, not the announcement that all kids are going safely back to school. It's better than that: the Aldi mud kitchen is online to buy now. Hurrah!

Yup, you can get the kids out in the garden, give them a bag of compost, the Aldi mud kitchen and have little to do with them again until September. Call it a biology lesson. Maybe DT. Perhaps even cookery. Either way, you're sorted. 

What is a mud kitchen? Remember making mud pies when you were young? It's that, but more organised. A mud kitchen encourages kids to play outdoors, creating mud pies or cocktails or murky milkshakes (we all know Jamie Oliver would be impressed). 

It's online from today to order – or you can get it in store from next Thursday 11th June. If you can't get hold of one or don't live near an Aldi, we've popped some alternatives below, too.
