Get cooking with a kitchen playset
If you are looking for perfect preschool toys that help your little one learn new skills and socialize with others, then kitchen toys are a great idea. A good kitchen playset includes everything your child needs to whip up recipes just like mom and dad. Kitchen play helps children with gross and fine motor skills, as well as social skills as they share recipes and pretend meals with friends and family. A play kitchen is also handy when you don't want the kiddos underfoot while you are cooking the real meal. In fact, kitchen playsets make great family toys that help you pass on cooking secrets from one generation to the next.
To start, you will want a few large kitchen play toys that will assist your child in preparing and storing make-believe food. A set with an oven and stove will help with baking skills, while a toy sink will help you educated your children on washing vegetables and dishes to keep a clean cooking environment. A play fridge or pantry gives your children a place to store all kinds of make believe food. While a whole kitchen set-up might seem like a lot, it will keep the kids from trying to put their pretend food in the already-cramped freezer in your kitchen.
Once you have the basic appliances and storage units in place, then you will need to stock the cabinets. Your child will need a variety of cooking utensils that match the ones you use every day. A set of mixing bowls and measuring cups will help with prep work, while some toy pots and pans are excellent for playing pretend on the stove. Add a few baking dishes so that your little one can whip up casseroles and cakes with ease. Small kitchen appliances are also essential when outfitting a kitchen playset. A mixer or blender is perfect for whipping up dishes that must be perfectly combined, and a toy microwave helps with quick reheating projects. Smaller tools like mixing spoons, toy knives and spatulas are essential for getting those imaginary dishes right every time.
Of course, your little chef will need to look the part with a few accessories to make kitchen play just as fun as any dress up play. A brightly colored apron will protect your child from spills and thrills, while a tall chef's hat helps her feel like the queen of her kitchen. Throw in a set of oven mitts so that she can learn early about the importance of protecting oneself from extreme temperatures. As the kitchen is completed, your child's stuffed animals and interactive dolls can join in the fun around the dining table as you are all served a make-believe feast fit for a king.
