cardboard kitchen

After 2 years of living with a toddler, there are two things I've learned:
#1 Toys, no matter how big, colorful, cuddly or loud, will inevitably lose their appeal in a couple of days or few weeks at most.
#2 Boxes are just as interesting.

This morning I had an inspired idea. I brought out one of our moving boxes and with a little imagination I made Bud a cardboard kitchen with a sink, dishwasher and a microwave. It was a real hit! He didn't mind at all that it was so crudely made. It kept him busy most of the afternoon. It was so amusing to watch him pretend to cook and wash dishes.

My only regret was that I should have done a little research before making the kitchen. Anyway, I found creative ideas to improve our crude kitchen from here, here and here.
Have a fun-filled week, bunnies!
