When it comes to gifting, we are clueless what would be the best thing to give, especially when it is for our child. We think hard for days and months to give them something which will be worthwhile. Something which will make them happy while helping them to learn. There are many more concerns in the minds of parents before presenting their children with anything. It should not be risky in any way, like sharp edges or harmful materials. And the most important is that their gift should be unique, out of the world. In that scenario, what could be better than a personalized gift! The probability of a customized gift to have a replica is none whatsoever. Thus, the parents of this child thought of creating a gift for their son’s second birthday, rather than buying him an extravagant gift.
This is the structure which Andrew and his wife had bought for $20 and used it as an entertainment center. Now, they were pondering on converting it into a kitchen playset for their son.
Work began! The doors of the shelf were uprooted and plywood were brought into play.
A steel bowl worth $4 was fixed into one of the shelves to serve as the sink.
Adjacent to it a faucet was fixed to give the sink a complete feel.
Close to the sink, as in real kitchen, holes were punched to fix stove burners.
Glass doors were revamped into plywood doors.
The miniature kitchen was painted new for less than $8.
The stove surface was demarcated with black paint, and it was covered with plexiglass.
To give the stove a better finish, electro-luminescent wiring which can run on battery without getting hot, were twisted into forming the burners.
The play kitchen is state-of-the-art, complete with an oven rack topped with a pizza.
The kitchen was made ready after the door was painted with chalkboard and inscribed with a ‘Grocery List’.
Finally, the day came which Andrew and his wife made all preparations for. Voila! There was the birthday boy’s amazing gift.
The heart and soul which his parents put together to make such an adorable gift was totally worth it as the playset brought smile on their son’s face. He will cherish this gift for a long time, that’s for sure!
