Kitchen Shelves

With our limited counter space, I needed additional places to put all of our produce. I originally wanted to have some nice floating shelves.

When my husband went on a business trip, the kids and I stopped at the hardware store on the way home from the airport to pick up supplies. We built and installed the floating shelves as a surprise for him. The kids had a last hammering away. When the phone rang, I called out “Everyone stop hammering! It’s Daddy!” However, floating shelves aren’t really meant for a lot of weight.

We ended up taking them down and replacing them with these shelves. They aren’t as cool looking as the floating shelves, but they are much more functional. I need to find another big white bowl or two to go on them.

Fairies, dragons, magic, and more. Childhood is a fascinating time, filled magic around every corner. Check out what Families Create! participants created in April:

Aunalise at My Sweet Potatoes shares with us the photographic tourshe went on with her children though the enchanted gardens in Photographic Tour Though the Enchanted Gardens and how her family made their very own Fairy Gardens.

A submarine toothbrush holder was inspiration at Living Peacefully with Children. Mandy’s children fantasized about what it would be like under the sea which she then put together with watercolors and framed for this Under the Sea Bathroom.

Brenna at Almost All The Truth shares how her family made Where the Wild Things Are come to life by letting her little wild things make masks and star in their own A Wild Things Masked Rumpus!

Amy at Anktangle created something very special to aide in imaginative fantasy play: a fierce but friendly Amigurumi Dragon!

While Mandy at Living Peacefully with Children doesn’t have her fantasy kitchen, she is making her simple kitchen work better. Check out her unused coat closet turned new Small Appliance Closet. Kitchen Shelves finally give a place to house some of the produce her family goes through. Homemade Chalkboards help keep her family organized while giving a place for children to explore their creativity.

Galit Breen blogged about the magic of the tooth fairy and shared some ideas to use when it’s time for your child’s tooth fairy to make an appearance in What Do You Do When The Tooth Fairy Comes?

Learn how to make some of the Gnome Homes for Rent that Auna at My Sweet Potatoes made for your own backyard and maybe you will soon have a village of Gnomes. Then read as she shares how to make Fairy Butter , a great snack for all the fairies/gnomes in your life.

No set would be complete at Living Peacefully with Children without a Harry Potter themed I-Spy set.
