With just two sheets of paper, a color printer, a cutting board, an exacto knife, a ruler, a scoring tool, glue and 30 minutes of your time you will be able create a kitchen which can provide hours of cheap and portable entertainment for your kids.
This project came about when I was playing with my son and some colored paper... he asked me to make a house, and I was only too eager to comply (one the reasons I'd wanted kids was to have an excuse for building a doll house...). But since I live in an apartment with limited space and I'm allergic to dust, I wanted a house I could fold up and put away. You can read the back story of the house creation here, or you can skip ahead and make your own kitchen by following the steps in this instructable.

Step 1: The templates
This pop-up is one room in an 8 room, 2 story house I designed and sell on my website (either as a kit or as a download). Individual rooms are also for sale (for $2), but since Instructables is a sharing community I set up a special $2 coupon just for you. This coupon will expire after 500 downloads.
To get the template click here, add it to your cart and when you check out use the coupon code
This will give you a $2 discount -- in other words it will be free, and you won't need to enter any financial information to get it. You can use this coupon on any of my designs, not just the kitchen, but you'll only be able to use it once.
