VLOG: The Kids’ Pretend Play Kitchen & Market

By far one of our favorite DIY projects has been the Pretend Play Kitchen and Market Ben and I built the kids!
We already did a whole blog post on the how-to with photos and a tutorial.
But after sharing some small clips of this space in other youtube videos… we’ve been asked to share more!
So here’s a video of the fun corner of our house in action!
I absolutely love how it’s big enough for all four kids to get in there and
use their imaginations and whip up some yummy play food.
The flower container is now used regularly when someone is going to “perform” for us…
A child always passes them out and we are all supposed to throw them after he or she finishes singing. ;)
I hope you enjoy our video below. Comment if you spot Asher cheesing
at the camera while the kids play. He’s such a goof. hehe.
You can see the full blog post on our DIY Kitchen and Market HERE!
I list all the sources and details so be sure to check it out.

If you aren’t following us on YouTube…
we would love to have you join the fun over there!!

Kids’ Pretend Play Kitchen

This pretend play project has been in my head for a while and I was so excited
that Ben helped me make it come to life!
We created a designated play kitchen/market area that sparks their imagination
and gives them a space to have fun all together.
I had been watching how the kids play and figured out the best set up for all four of them.
I saw how they could use a little more counter top space and shelves because they love laying it all out.
They needed a counter area for a “market” but then space for their cafe/restaurant! 
I’m putting together the full blog post over the weekend and
will be sharing all of the details, links and building plans!athomewithnatalie-playkitchen 1

This has been such a worthwhile project, giving us hours of fun so far!
It’s something they can all play together… Ages 18 months to 8 years old!
They play in this space every day multiple times. So if you are considering
making a “bigger” designated pretend play area… I can’t suggest it enough!
Looking forward to sharing all the details next week.
Hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend!
