Then I sewed a table cloth and used velcro to adhere it to the box, used an eye hook to hold measuring cups and stapled some fabric on to create a handle where I could hang a dishtowel. I also staple gunned fabric to create a "bulletin board" and used velcro to display pictures of our family.
Here's Catherine - she loves peeling off the timer!
So far they love it! I got some plastic pans and play food from Target and John Patrick has been cooking all night tonight. :) All in all it took about an hour and a half and here is the cost breakdown:
box was free
6 acrylic paint bottles (3 blue, 1 green, 1 orange and 1 silver) $6
sponge brushes $2
set of 10 knobs from Hobby Lobby $3
fabric (used remnants I had...free)
Dollar store items: spatulas, timer, dishtowel, tea set, set of two plastic bowls $5
TOTAL is $16 And it was fun to make!! Give it a try!
