As a mom of 6 and as a previous childcare provider, I have always recommended to other parents and caregivers that young kids have access to a toy kitchen. Imaginary play is key to a child’s development and it is always nice to see children play with toys versus an electronic. If you are planning on adding a toy kitchen to your child’s playroom or to your daycare or school, here are 5 Things Your Child Will Need for Their Toy Kitchen.
KidKraft Kitchen: I like kitchens that include items such as a microwave, an oven, refrigerator and more. This allows the child to add to their creative play. Before you decide on a kitchen, make sure that you read the reviews on different websites.
Chef’s Outfit: Every little cook needs a chef outfit so they can look the part.
Toaster: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so every kitchen needs a toaster set.
Wooden Food: Every kitchen needs food. Make sure that when you buy food for the kitchen that the food is made of wood and not plastic. This will make sure that the food lasts longer.
Roseart Creative Cafe Barista Bar: (for ages 6+) This is the perfect addition to your child’s kitchen. It is RoseArt’s newest kitchen toy and it is fabulous! Your little one can be your personal barista while creating endless latte looks with just milk. It does not use heat and is kid safe. In addition, it comes with strawberry and chocolate flavor packets and includes recipe cards to get your little one started. This is not only the perfect addition to your little one’s kitchen because it is super cool, but it will also help your child read and follow directions as well as creating their own drink concoctions.
If you have a little one or if you take care of little ones, it is very important that you encourage pretend and creative play. One of the best ways is to provide them with a toy kitchen.
