Our old Ikea change table has been gathering dust in our shed since my kids grew out of nappies and I have had the idea for quite some time of turning it into a play shop/ marketstall. On Sunday afternoon we finally got around to completing this little project which only took a couple of hours to create. My husband sawed off the legs of the changetable to ensure it was a suitable height and then whipped up a little frame for the canopy I had sewn.
My two children were super excited and quickly started filling the shop with all sort of goodies - felt flowers (which I had previously made) and various felt and wooden cakes, donuts, fruits and vegetables. I have visited their little shop quite frequently this morning! With big brother back at prep for the first day of term 2, unfortunately I am the only customer today!
Although this particular shop sells its cakes at quite a hefty price ( I just spent "$700" for a donut! ) it is certainly providing hours of entertainment.
