Best kitchen 🍳 play ideas with our toys
Imaginative play with toys is such an important part of every child's learning and development. We are really loving the amazing play-kitchen inspiration for hours of school holiday fun. Kids always love getting creative in the kitchen. For some mess-free fun they can whip up all sorts of weird and wonderful meals or fancy drinks. We've got plenty of accessories you can add to your at-home kitchen play. Check out some ideas below for more inspiration...
Having a small kitchen in a bedroom if you have space is a great idea. It keeps it all in one room for play at anytime. Sometimes all you need is just a small corner of the room to create a pretty space. You can see here @madelinemcfarlanestylist has even added some extra storage under the kitchen. Our wooden tea set really compliments the space.
Use some old Op Shop finds such as pots n' pans which are not too big and add them to your kitchen set-up. You can even add some real wooden spoons! It makes things look more organic and less styled, if that is the look you are going for. You can even raid your own cupboards for some good finds.
Why not frame your kids kitchen set up with some extra shelfing. We love how @kelli_murray here has used a small kitchen here and added extra shelves with this simple wooden structure. The wallpaper backdrop really sets it off.
Natural wood at its best by @thefrenchfolk Make sure you check out Margaux Follis's Instagram account for lots of great DIY ideas on how to pimp up your kitchen using natural wood and tones. We love the simplicity if this so much.
You can easily add some "Doll Play" to your "Kitchen Play" too! Once again this image by @thefrenchfolk shows how to do it!
Another great example by @thefrenchfolk of to pimp up your kitchen but this time with color and a beautiful print.
Boys like to have fun in the kitchen too! Why not add a chalk board next to your kitchen so menus can be created from the kitchen. You never know what is going to be served up next!
Sometimes natural tones are just the best way to go!
A post box for letter writing is also easy to add next to your play kitchen set-up just to extend the play a bit more. This is a great example with our iconic post box.
Add some felt fruit & vegetables!
Why not serve a healthy tummy breakfast straight from the kitchen!
We love how @lovelucyj has incorporated her Cubby House with her kitchen set up. Create a little Cafe and menu.
