1. To plan

Make a little drawing of the children's kitchen. Make sure to note the reduced dimensions so that your child can also look at the work surface. The slats serve as legs and the panels replicate both the side walls and various details.

2. Saws

Then saw all the parts to size. You should have the acrylic sheet for the oven cut to fit in the hardware store. You simply saw the four hotplates out of the wooden plates and doubled the worktop. Saw a hole for the sink that is slightly smaller than the plastic bowl you obtained. The edge of the bowl then rests on the plate. So it is also possible to actually wash off with a little water, because the bowl can easily be lifted out.

3. Screw

All parts should be well rounded at the edges with sandpaper. Before screwing, pre-drill all the holes and deepen them with a countersink so that your child cannot injure themselves on protruding screws.

4th. To brush

Bright colors are the trump card in the children's kitchen. The hotplates should still be kept in black. If you happen to have an old shower head, you can use it to imitate the faucet. Otherwise, use lots of red and blue for the kitchen. The worktop looks very friendly in a bright lemon yellow. In addition, use acrylic paints whenever possible, as these will not evaporate later. If you use old wood, it must be sanded beforehand.

Tips & Tricks If you still have a disused low chest of drawers or two old bedside cabinets in the attic, you can use them to build a small wooden kitchen relatively quickly. The found objects must just not be too big so that they are suitable for the children's kitchen.
