There are some toys that children will always enjoy playing with an a puppet theater is one of them.
This super easy craft is made from just one large box, some sono tubes, paint and some decorative paper.
Easy enough for the children to make for themselves other than cutting the hole for the theater in the front and the escape hatch in the back.
I made this to look like a castle which gives it all sorts of opportunity for the children to make up stories for Rapunzel, and other fairy tales, Lords and Ladies, Knights and Princess or where ever their imagination takes them.
Easy enough to construct in an afternoon with some time given for the paint to dry.
