Babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers will love playing with the "toys" from Mommy's kitchen cupboards!
Place all of the kitchen items in a central location.
Let kids play with the new "toys."
You can suggest they play "kitchen" or "restaurant," or maybe create musical instruments.
Once playtime is over, all of the "toys" can head straight for the dishwasher.
This makes a great activity for when babies want to come to play.
(And you'd rather all of your other toys stay out of their mouths).
