Someone's in the Kitchen








We decided to get creative this weekend. I saw an idea for a kitchen in a box on www.familyfun.com, it is basically a cardboard box painted to look like a mini kitchen. You cut a hole and use a stainless steel bowl for a sink, you make a faucet from cardboard, you also cut out an oven and a cupboard. We started painting the box on Sunday morning, it took 3 coats of white paint. Once the paint dried it was time to paint the burners and sink handles. Overall the project took most of the morning. Sophia seems to love it, she played with it non stop. She had out all of her kitchen dishes and bowls and she was cooking up a storm. Fletcher enjoyed the pretend food. At one point Sophia was inside the kitchen. I guess all you need is a cardboard box and a little bit of imagination to have a good time.
