puppet-theater on Kidoinfo
I used a refrigerator box from Atomic Appliance in Providence to make our puppet theater.

cardboard box
straight edge / ruler
pencil / markers
utility knife
Make curtains. Hang from dowel or wire or velcro onto box
Make show sign. Attach a small chalkboard to front of theater or make your own sign from masonite and chalkboard paint.

How to:
Cut an opening in the box to make the stage. Keep it simple or decorate theater with paint and curtains. A table top version can easily be made from a smaller cardboard box.

- Make your own puppets from socks or felt.
- Buy crafty pre-made puppets online from  Mahar Dry Goods or Dwell Baby.
- Find plush, realistic puppets (like Folkmani) online or locally at Creatoyvity on Hope Street.
