A peek inside a reader’s play space…
My two just love their new kitchen made from an old entertainment unit. We created the stove by drawing circles on top and colouring them in with a black permanent marker. My kids have some of their own bakeware, but they’re also allowed to raid mine as long as they put it back! The same applies for tinned goods. We bought some plastic fruit and vegetables and also found a lovely cupcake canvas picture to go on the wall. A plastic basin serves as a sink. My son was most disappointed that I haven’t made an oven door yet, but solved the problem himself by adding part of an old computer desk. Knobs for the stove can be made from milk bottle caps.
Our next step is to make a healthy food poster using pictures from all the supermarket junkmail that regularly appear in our letterbox.
I would like to find a framed picture with a nice view to use as a kitchen window that I’d add little curtains to. Do you think I’m having as much fun playing in their kitchen as they are?
