Our nephew is just about to turn one! It's been fun seeing him grown and explore his world over the last year. He just took his first steps a few weeks ago and has been walking his little unbalanced Frankenstein walk all over the house! He also loves to take out every toy from his bin and place it on the floor (he's going to be organized!). That's probably why he likes the plastic play kitchen at his grandparents house so much. It's filled with fake veggies and other foods that he can take out and organize to his little heart's content.
Because our Nephew enjoys his kitchen so much, we gave a special "awww" when we came across this DIY play kitchen online.
At first we though this was a one-time super inventive creation but they had a link to their inspiration. That link had a link to it's inspiration, and that link had a link to it's inspiration! We felt like Alice falling down a rabbit hole. Who knew there were so many people making their own play kitchens?!?
We found some plans to build your own on Ana-White's website. If you haven't checked out her site, do it! There are tons of tutorials on how to start building your own furniture, even easy ones anyone can start with!
We totally want to build one but we don't have any buns in the over (is that a kitchen pun?) and our nephew is still a year too short for this option design. If anyone wants to fund us for parts though we could be your free labor!
