Has anyone else been following Kerflop's search for the perfect play kitchen? (She found one.)
With Christmas around the corner, I'd love your thoughts about the best way to "play kitchen" on the cheap. And yes, I realize the irony of typing that even as I post a picture of a $150 Pottery Barn stove. I couldn't pass up the Pottery Barn for $15, if only for eventual resale.
Until this fall, our play kitchen consisted of this rectangular tin filled with vintage Jello molds, tart shells, and 10-cent yard sale spoons and stirrers. We take the whole tin outdoors and cook leaves, grass, and dirt--or we set everything up on the coffee table with pretend food. A kitchen tin takes up a lot less room than a miniature kitchen.
Shhh! Don't tell Elise, but I'm teaching Andrew to sew by making vegetables out of old felted sweaters. There'll be a market basket under the Christmas tree, not as pretty but filled with much more love than the catalog version.
