I have not been active on MDC since my daughter was younger but she is now 6 years old and in Kindergarten.  I am re-decorating her room, getting her a big girl bed, etc. and was wondering when do children typically stop playing with play kitchens......?  I do love imaginative play but I feel it is only used maybe once a week and we could sure use the space since she now has a twin bed instead of a toddler bed.  (btw - I do change it up and sometimes make it a store, a vet office, etc.)

 

Also if/when you remove the play kitchen what other imaginative type thing would you add?  A tent, reading nook, etc.

 

Thanks in advance.

Welcome back!  wave.gif  My children are younger, of course, but I am always experimenting with play spaces.  Sometimes we have a market theme or a restaurant theme.  Just take it out one day when she is not at home and see what happens.  Make a reading space together.  That sounds so lovely.  Maybe a canopy like they sell from Magic Cabin.  Here are some thoughts on play spaces: http://sewliberated.typepad.com/sew_liberated/2011/08/playful-learning-thoughts-on-crafting-a-space.html
