Yesterday, Nils insisted on reading the Craft: Blog with me (as in, I insisted on reading it and he insisted on sitting on my lap whilst I did so...). Then we came across this, and he exclaimed 'I want a kitchen!', so who was I to argue.
Mine was way cheaper than $10. Given that it's made out of two cardboard boxes (which came 'free' as packaging), an old ice cream tub (ditto), some found cardboard and buttons, and string which I got from my mum, it probably cost me about a quid for sticky tape and 50p for the yarn used to crochet the tap.
Nils immediately went on to make a delicious imaginary strawberry cake, followed by some button soup. Then he turned it on its side and used it as a garage for his cars! Jack of all trades, that one.
I'm mostly excited because it's a good excuse to buy one of them miniature kids' cooking sets from IKEA.
