    We transformed our kitchen into a place to cook and play. Before our transformation it was dated, the cabinets were a light colored oak and showed every stain (*ahem* decoration) and while I love the size and functionality of my fridge, it did not add any spark to our kitchen. Time for a DIY project...

      I do not know about you, but my daughter is always underfoot when I am cooking! Now she's old enough for me to involve her, but it would have been nice to have had some of these in my kitchen when she was younger!!

      Ways to play in the kitchen-Some of our favorite kitchen play activities are pretending to cook on the floor with empty pots and pans, or making a drum set out of the pans and banging away to our hearts content. We also enjoy learning our letters with magnets and coloring on our new fridge with dry erase markers.
