Organizing a Play Kitchen

Like mother, like daughter. Boo likes her kitchen organized……so we make it fun…..pulling everything out onto the coffee table and organizing it bit by bit.

Her favorite part is cleaning her bowls and food with lysol wipes….I don’t complain.


(more after the jump)

Everything has it’s place:

We made these donuts: (check out the tutorial here)


All the Melissa and Doug food sets are so adorable…..and I love that they are made of wood:



When we are done sorting……it all fits nicely back into the kitchen:



This post is part of my new series Getting Organized:

    Thanks for posting this! My 2 year-old just got a large box of plastic play food, and it is everywhere! When I say play food, I mean individual plastic fries, chips, etc. Seeing how you organized everything is very helpful! The last thing I want is to step on a plastic pickle. :)

      hehehe “step on a plastic pickle” that is really funny… I guess unless it happens to you :)

    So cute, I need to organize mine too. My plan this summer was to spruce up the kitchen playset itself….. might have to be a winter project.

    I really love Boo’s kitchen, and the doughnuts that you guys made! I will have to make some of my own! Right now I am working on knitting up the tea set and cupcakes from Susan B. Anderson’s book Itty-Bitty Nursery. I just love toy food!

    Great idea! I think my girls would actually like organizing their play kitchen if I told them they could use the Lysol wipes!!

    I love her little kitchen and ironing board!! Where did they come from? My daughter is due for a little play kitchen upgrade. :)
