5 Amazing Play Kitchens That You Can Build

The kitchen is one of the first places that your kids can learn chores and help you accomplish tasks. It can also be a great place for them to be exposed to using tools and utensils. But before they are big enough to actually help they still want to mimic you and “play” kitchen. Our son is only a couple months old but he’s already fascinated by what we are doing in the kitchen and we can really see how fun it can be for kids to play in their own kitchen.

There are a lot of play kitchens that you can buy and most are plastic and kinda gross. If you’re an accomplished woodworker we’ve got plans for building your own play kitchen but if you’re like us and DIY motivated but don’t have the tools and skills to build play kitchen from scratch, you can do what these makers did and build a play kitchen yourself.

Here are 5 amazing play kitchens that you can build with your kids.
