I'm thinking we'll take it with us for trips to the garden plot, visits with grandparents, or just playing outside in the backyard like we did this afternoon.
I used an ordinary folding TV tray table for the base, and sewed the stove top cover using wool felt. Here you can see the curtains under the stove where Emily stores a basket of play food, pots and pans.
As soon as I put it outside, the girls wasted no time and got busy cookin'!!
Emily liked firing up the burners....
....and drying her hands on the kitchen towel.
Clara thought the "drawer" pockets were so much fun!
They played outside until it was time to get dinner ready!
What I loved about bringing the kitchen set outside was how it led to all sorts of neat "play" food experiences, like leaves for "salad" and grass for "spinach angel hair".
