Life In The Pink Tower: Baby In The Kitchen

A couple of fun activities we have done lately.  The first set was a "think fast, need to get dinner made-baby underfoot" solution.  Empty egg carton and a few dried beans did the trick.  (Although next time I'll use less beans.)  She did think it was fun to pretend to put them in her mouth and look at me for a reaction.
The second set is slicing bananas.  This type of slicer I highly recommend.  I was making banana bread but this could also be done simply for a snack.  Notice she has her cheeks full!  I did a shot from above so you can see al that is needed to prepare each activity.
We really do not need a lot of expensive toys that serve limited purpose and end up collecting dust in the garage.  There are so many great things readily available in our homes.


  1. Hi Coedith I enjoy your blog so much I have nominated you for a blog award!

  2. My daughters too, they love playing with things that are not toys. They can be so much more creative, they tie things together with string, they think up new ways to use things...great! The pictures are adorable! Have a great weekend.

  3. That apron is darlin and I agree! We don't buy our kids toys either. They are a total waste of money!

  4. What kind of slicer is that? We desperately need one of those.
