Looking around my house today, I realized that our home has officially turned into ‘Romper Room’. It is as if adults do not even reside here. It is amazing that even with as many toys and activities that we have for our toddler,she still gets bored. Our latest project to help alleviate boredom…the puppet show.
If you were following us yesterday, you would have seen my DIY felt puppet tutorial, which was part 1 of today’s post. https://thepinterestedparent.wordpress.com/2013/11/16/puppet-theater-part-1-the-felt-puppets/
We have the puppets, now we need the stage to put on our show.
What you will need…
A cardboard box
a glue gun
craft sticks (popsicle sticks)
Use fabric to make your curtains. I used an old shirt that I was about to throw away. Use craft wire to string up curtain. Poke two holes on the top of your box at opposite ends. Pull the craft wire with curtain through the holes & knot to secure.
Let the show begin…
While Mai loved the puppets & was even asking for them by name. “Where did June go?” The actual puppet show entertained, for only a matter of moments. She did however enjoy playing in the box later on that day.
