How To: Make a Toy Kitchen Out of Cardboard

How To: Make a Toy Kitchen Out of Cardboard

You're dying to know how all these pieces of cardboard conspire to become a full play kitchen, aren't you? There's only one way to find out...


Inspired by the $600 Molimo play kitchen, Anna designed and fabricated this wonderful structure from scratch and blogged about the process on her site. In her own words:

This little kitchen unit is built entirely from recycled (as in, salvaged from the dumpster) corrugated cardboard covered in contact paper. No glue, no nails, nothing but clever joining cuts make the kitchen entirely disassemblable so it can be packed flat for moving/storage. The structure is all my own design. (Can you tell I'm pretty proud of this?)

As she should be! Fortunately, Anna's ingenuity is everyone's gain. She's made the full plans available for sale for only $8 in her Etsy shop, forty-two roads.
