That is what the headline in the Carmona house reads after my last little project. 😀 My 3 girls are so thrilled. For some reason I thought they were outgrowing the “playing house” years…apparently I was wrong and for that I am glad! Let them be sweet, imaginative young’uns as long as they can!
The great part is how simple it is to make! I’m sharing the full tutorial to build this play kitchen over at Remodelaholic today.
“Supermom Builds Play Kitchen”. That is what the headline in the Carmona house reads after my last little project.
I built this for my 7 year old…but I saw even my oldest daughter enjoying the little play kitchen with her sisters too. She is 11 years old and is taking the fun of play kitchens into our real life kitchen, and quite the little baker is emerging. I often wonder if by “playing house” when they are young it translates into them enjoying household tasks when they are a tiny bit older. Well, I have no idea, but I am loving this process of slowly graduating from playing house and tea parties with our imagination to family bread making, and playing Iron Chef in the kitchen. Haha, that being said, they seem to be enjoying both real life, then imaginative life right after.
How do you make household chores and daily obligations an enjoyable pastime in your family? Do you have strategies for keeping the drudgery out of work until it becomes second nature for your young ones?
