The first room I completely unpacked and set up was the play room. I really hoped the kids would be excited about an entire room just for their toys so that they’d have fun playing while I unpacked the rest of the house.
My children have wanted a play kitchen for a long time. For as long as it’s been since I gave away their last one. But the problem with my kids and play kitchens is they always, always take apart the thing and break the thing. Doesn’t matter which play kitchen I get them! So instead this time I just bought a bunch of dishes ($10 for a pack at Ikea) and used the shelves for toys as their “kitchen.” Works just as well! And not easily breakable!
This is the dining section of their play restaurant. The girls cook up a storm for Payson, their only customer. It’s pretty much the cutest thing ever. They even make everything gluten and dairy free for him. How sweet and thoughtful is that?!
