Step stools for kid chefs

So the thing about inviting small people into the kitchen is that they're... small! Most kid chefs don't come anywhere close to reaching the counter without some assistance. Kids, like adults, should be somewhere in the neighborhood of having their waists at counter height. Here are some handy step stools for kid chefs too short to reach the counter!

Learning towers are awesome because they contain the child from all angles. And they're adjustable, so they can get lower and lower as the kiddo gets taller and taller. Montessori teachers swear by these. Downsides- they're pricey and take up a lot of floor space.
