Sure, you could buy one, but where's the fun in that? Christmas is coming up, why not make your little one a play kitchen and encourage hours of imaginative play!?
We made P a play kitchen for his second birthday/Christmas -- I can't remember which it was now since he didn't actually get it until after both HA oops. That was almost a year ago now and it's still in perfect condition, despite P's attempts to damage it.
Anyway, we only bought a couple items for it, the rest we had laying around
~ Stainless steel bowl for the sink
~ Wood 'project board' from Lowe's
~ $5 can of 'oops paint' from Home Depot in the perfect shade of blue
We already had lying around:
~ Wood flooring used for the cupboard doors, the shelf and the stove elements
~ The brackets for the shelf
~ The beaded board and molding
~ The giraffe pulls for the cupboards, why not? and the hinges
~ The beeswax we used on the counter top for a little water protection
P loves his play kitchen, and plays with it almost every day still, and we love that we made it just for him... and that it can stand up to his using it as a ladder without tipping over... boys.
