String Bean's Stove Top

On New Year's Eve, I decided that String Bean needed a cooking surface for all her new dishes and food so she could continue to learn the fine art of home making. Our condo is not large enough for a full-size kitchen, so I decided to create a stove top surface for her using only a shirt box, contact paper, 4 cabinet knobs with screws and washers, a sheet of red foam paper, and a black sharpie.

Here are some pictures of the final project:

String Bean is cooking up a storm! Please note the princess tent in the background. This is a favorite Christmas present of String Bean's.

Mr. Bean was kind enough to do the marker work on the burners and the knobs.

For those of you interested in step-by-step instructions on how to make this stove top for your little ones, stay tuned for tomorrow's post!
