Homemade puppet theater

I am not a big fan on commenting the weather, when there isn't anything we can do about it, but enough is enough. I really feel how my kids already miss playing outdoors.

However, mama has a solution - DIY toys.  They really provide you multiple benefits - you are having fun, you recycle, the boredom is gone and you forget about the rainy weather.

So we decided to make a puppet theater. Finally all those numerous stuffed toys found their purpose in life.

Notice how Cars mania still lasts in our house

We pasted several boxes one to each other (we used duct tape). I perforated the bottom of the top box and added some curtains ( I hung fabrics craps on a plain plastic rod), and the show was ready to begin.

We also had another, simpler version with a garden house made ​​of plastic tubes and which originally had a plastic cover, but was torn apart in the heat of the game. Here we used old blankets and sheets for a stage:

If you really do not have any boxes or a garden house, you can use a sofa or a lower cabinet / dresser. Only thing important is to play ......

Let the game begin!
