We have a whole kitchen set outside by the sandbox in the summer. There's a sink/stove, fridge and then I had an extra washer/dryer and a little grill. The kids LOVE having it out there. I, too, put a set of play dishes and food out there. They pretend all sorts of stuff, usually involving sand and/or worms. I bring out dress up clothes and baby dolls (and a TON of other toys) so it's just another part of our outside classroom.

Last summer I bought up enough items that I now have a separate set of everything for outside and no longer have to get all the dirt off them to bring them back inside. I still have a few things that I bring out and then work hard to clean up again and then the books outside rotate each week but a lot of the things we use outside are just stored in the garage through the winter.
