Homemade Puppet Theatre

The recommended age for this one is 6+years due to the amount of cutting. If you have a preschooler though that’s great with scissors, they too may find this activity loads of fun. Blu tack is one of the materials used, so keep an eye on any little ones around with this activity.

What you will need: Large cardboard box, colouring book & textas, sticky tape, scissors, Blu tack, straws.

Place the characters into the theatre. To make the theatre, simply take a good sized box and cut for your kids a large hole in each side

My kids added crepe paper to make straw, but any props can be added to keep in theme with the child’s story line
