Over at Boxy Colonial, Gretchen and her husband had the inspired idea to create an outdoor kitchen just for their kids. This was a recycling-heavy project that is going to provide many hours of fun for a very low cost!
The location for the play kitchen is underneath their backyard swing set. Many of the materials–like the lumber, hardware, and paint were leftovers from other projects. Gretchen found all of the kitchen implements at the thrift store. Her husband made a simple counter for the kitchen from their scrap lumber, complete with a “sink” made from an old pot lid. All kinds of kitchen tools that are kid-friendly are available for the kids to play with in their kitchen, either hanging on the wall over the counter of stored underneath in crates. Mud pies for everyone!
