10 Minute Kitchen...for FREE!

So Jackie was talking tonight about cooking a "big dinner" and a little play kitchen is something I've wanted to get the boys for awhile, but just never got around to it.

I've seen a lot of DIY kitchens online and have wanted to tackle a few.  Like this one.
But I'm a little intimidated.  Trying to turn an old dresser into a play kitchen...?  Nope.

But I heard about bin kitchens and have seen a few around bloggy land like this one.
I thought I could do that!  And I did.

I took the easy way out and pulled this puppy together for free in under 10 minutes...probably sooner if Jack would've stopped bugging me.

I already had an empty bin not in use.  I traced some circles out of construction paper and cut em out.  Four big ones for the burners, four small ones for the top knobs and 4 more small ones for the front knobs.
Then taped em all down with clear packing tape.  All done!

The hard part was figuring out what I could do without in my kitchen, so Jackie would have some stuff to cook in his kitchen.  

So even though this is a free project so far, I think we'll be heading up to the local thrift store this weekend to find some inexpensive cookware for the budding chef!

Enjoy!

  2. This is great! I love that you don't have to commit to something that will take up a ton of space and can reuse the bin for something else when he is on to the next thing:)

    Great idea:)

  6. This is SOO great! I'm thinking that the tote can hold all of the kitchen stuff inside too! I've seen so many play kitchens on blogs, but nothing that I had the patience for. This is perfect. Thank you for sharing!
