A Waldorf play kitchen

Our new home has the most perfect little nook for our Waldorf play kitchen. With a lovely big window that the morning sun floods through. It’s between our kitchen and family room… at one end of our dining room. So right in the center of activity!

It brings together some lovely Waldorf-y elements we have been gathering over the last few years… A little child sized kitchen hutch with egg cups, milk bottles and bakeware. A sweet little table that my mum gave us when she moved away. And my favourite ~ a little olden style oven. I’d been coveting a beautiful Waldorf wooden one when my mother in law’s heater broke. She offered it to us to convert into a play oven. And isn’t it just right!

Then there are the little touches… a beautiful Waldorf alphabet from the Old Freedom Train (I’ve only recently put this up, despite having it for a couple of years, as my son is now very interested in letters). A colourful rug to bring the area together. And what play kitchen would be complete without a tea set. Chai tea and cake is served to me quite regularly!

Happy days, Kelly

    We’ve begun to move on from our little kitchen corner, though we still have a beautiful wooden sink and stove tucked into a corner of our family room as we have for the last 10 years!
