Lulu is finishing up her project for our homeschool group’s history fair. It’s an Indian dollhouse kitchen inspired, I think, by her fairy house building with Mr. T.
My favorite parts are the tiny clay spice dishes, and the window out to an authentic Indian street.
She wanted to build a modern-day Indian kitchen. It was hard to find resources, but she and I found photos here and there. She used lots of foamcore and Fimo, a few Playmobil pieces, and lots of imagination.
Since it’s a history fair, she plans to point out the Indian history alive in a modern-day kitchen. Not too hard considering India is a country still steeped in its history.
I’d like to crawl in there, and sip a cup of chai tea.
a girl after my own indian-loving heart! its obvious that so much love and hard work went into this. it’s beautiful!
Evelyn said she had to look twice to see that it wasn’t a real kitchen! I can’t wait to see it in person. I love the spice bowls, too. And the sacks of grains. And the shelf!
I can’t wait to see it. Will you guys be making lots of Indian food at home? Every time I read the recipe for my favorite malai kofta, I can’t bring myself to make it. So good, though!
This is so adorable. Don’t you want to keep it forever? The photos of it came out so well too. I like how the pots and stove look handcrafted. The details like the ganesha ganesh altar and the art work are so cool. It’s very artistic. She must have learned a lot about India in order to craft such a wonderful space.
This is awesome! Way to go L.! It makes me wish I could go to the history fair to see it! ( Instead I will be at a violin lesson- a different sort of treat)
This is just exquisite! I’m so happy to have a chance to see it.
Amazing! Such detail. I’ll have a cup while you’re pouring…
Wow, I can’t believe the detail! That really took a lot of work and research! I really liked the examples of other projects you saw at the fair, too. So inspiring! There is so much out there in the world to find out about!
love this! 🙂
