DIY play kitchen

Today I want to share with you an idea of an easy, cheap and super fun project to do at home on a weekend: a DIY play kitchen.

We used cardboard boxes (free), non-toxic craft painting ($1 each at Michael’s), Silver Sharpie marker ($2.99), blue dot stickers, tons of moving tape ($2.99), and a piece of magnet (free) to keep the door of the oven and microwave closed.

There are tons of tutorials online but… I want to encourage you to do it without the tutorial, give it a try at home with your kid and let your imagination guide you. You’ll see that even it gets messy, it will be FUN and at the end, you will feel great!

This was the way we did it.


First, I made the oven and then the microwave using the cardboard boxes and a lot of tape.


Then -this was the fun moment for Marco- we painted the oven and microwave and let them dry for about 30 minutes.


Afterwards, I attached the microwave to the oven/stove part using a lot of tape and some staples (on the oven door bar).


Finally, I painted the details with a silver sharpie marker… et voilá!


DIY Play Kitchen Done!
