You know we love to make play resources from recycled pallets and this one has been on my list for quite some time. Well if I'm honest, not my list, Daddy's list!
He has again made my vision become a reality and says it was one of the easiest of my ‘bright ideas' to build. When I posted a picture of our finished pallet sink a few weeks ago on my facebook page it proved very popular so I promised to share with everyone how we made it.
Drop the sink into the frame and you are ready to ‘dress' your sink. We use a bucket under our sink holes if we are playing with water so we can recycle it onto the garden.
Even if you don't fill the sinks with water though there are so many ways to use this new resource.
Does your council have a recycle centre where you live?

I LOVE your kitchen sandpit, it looks like so much fun can be had. It is funny how much kids love cooking in the sandpit.

I’m speechless! This is such and amazing project! If I’d had something like this as a kid I would have lost it. Kudos to you and hubby 🙂
Thanks so much for the idea! I think I still have a kitchen sink in the barn from when my m.i.l. redid the kitchen 15 years ago. Now I just need her to bring home some pallets from work. Again, thank you!
How wonderful Amanda! Hope you get those pallets, be sure to send a pic if you get it done, would love to see 🙂
The pictures appear to be missing from this post and I was very interested in the instructions… thanks! 🙂
My apologies the pictures are indeed missing – very frustrating I know!! My server has been having some issues but I am hoping to have everything sorted and my pics back here very soon. Sorry for the inconvenience!
I made this by myself yesterday, yay Mom power!, and my kids love it! Thank you so much for the instructions and making it look so easy! It was! :):)
