Now we can cook

I bought a toy kitchen set consisting of pots and pans a few months ago so that Emma could play with it when she came to visit.  Since I could not afford to buy a toy oven, I obsessed for months about making one.  I finally recently found the right cardboard box to make into an oven.  With a little help from acrylic paint and silver duct tape I was able to transform it into this:

The oven door opens up too and is kept closed by the magnetic lock cleverly designed by my husband.

Total cost of materials = $20
Emma's delight when she saw it = priceless


  1. You Rock!! I love to see such creativity in people. It goes to show you don't need tons of money to make people happy, people of any age.
