We love a good play kitchen no matter what size. The trend is to build them from discarded pieces of furniture but some smaller spaces just aren't able to accommodate their footprint. Instead, check out this pint-size version that you can make:
A cardboard box is the perfect size to make into a mini makeshift oven. Although it might not stand up to the same abuse that a converted wooden entertainment center might take, that doesn't mean your child won't get loads of fun from this project.
You'll find the supply list and a helpful video tutorial at Martha Stewart. That said, you could use practically anything that's surplus in your home. Look out for plastic lids or circles in general that might be hitting the trash, and if you're not into using CD's for burners, cut cardboard circles from the side of a cereal box will do just fine!
