How to Make a Cardboard Box Puppet Theatre

Introducing… our cardboard box puppet theatre. Molly has been making puppets using lollypop sticks for a couple of months now. I don’t know where she got the idea from. She has gradually made a whole little family of puppets out of craft materials and a lolly pop stick. I knew the next box we got would have to be turned into a puppet theatre to house them. Luckily we got one the right size. This is a really great activity. It’s such an easy thing to make and encourages creativity and language skills. It also encourages a little bossiness streak, unfortunately as we the audience were not quiet enough for the performance.  

I’m looking forward to watching lots more performances in the cardboard box puppet theatre from now on. I may bring pop corn next time though.
