Organizing Your Play Kitchen

This is our kitchen! It is one of the most popular areas in our playroom and it was driving me crazy!!! It was always a mess and I think it was discouraging quality pretend play!

First I took pictures of each thing in it's proper place. Then I taped down the pictures:) I didn't put anything in the oven, or on the counter or stove top. I did that so that the kids only pull out what they want to use instead of digging a bunch of stuff out just so they can use the oven/dishwasher/dryer.
I also screwed in some small brass hooks for the aprons to hang on the side...
...and the hot pads above the stove.
I Love this Kitchen and, now it's getting even more use then it was before, because it is more inviting! I had a new girl in my class say, "Hmmm, I need to put the pizza away, oh there's a picture, I know where it goes!" I was in teacher heaven:)

  6. Thanks for reminding me of this. I have the same problem with our art space. I love the art space and it is definitely the most used space in our house but it can get so untidy. I think I have to make some place cards, too. Thanks.

  7. What a lovely and inviting kitchen. I like that it is also gender neutral. Ours is very pink and girly (but I guess it is okay since we don't have any boys in the house!)
