As my children are 6 and 10, they now use our own kitchen proficiently. While I still have a drawer for their most used items, and our crockery is also in a low cupboard, they don’t have a specific food preparation area or a cute water dispenser.

So I’m sharing with you some good ideas from Instagram:

I love how the water dispenser is on a basket and a tray, allowing the child to pour the water easily in his cup.
