Feven's New Kitchen!

We spent all of naptime Friday putting the finishing touches on Feven's kitchen.  Here is what it looked like before we added her cooking toys.  The "sink" is a small metal bowl we bought for about $0.20 at the thrift store.  The faucet was purchased on Craig's List for $5 and the stovetop burners are spray-painted cds.  The burners are sitting more to the left because we're still hoping to find some old knobs to mount on the right side of the stove so Feven can "turn on" her burners.  

This is what her kitchen looked like when we added the pots, pans, dishes, food, and an actual kids' oven mitt I found at the thrift store!

When Feven woke up we went in her room and told her we had a surprise for her.  We opened her bedroom door and she could see the kitchen down the hallway.  She said, "Ooooooh!" and went right for it. 

The first priority was chocolate chip cookies.  (They were delicious)

One piece of equipment that fascinated her was the battery-powered mixing bowl.  While using it she exclaimed, "How 'bout that!"  Here is a video clip that shows her using the mixer.

All in all it was a HUGE success.  I think that since Friday, the kitchen is the only toy that she's used!  She has cooked a lot of things including spinach muffins, coffee, pizza, cucumber hot dogs, corn, pear soup, ice cream cones, and lots and lots of cookies. 

What a fun project this turned out to be!  Here is one final look at the before and after:
