Are your kids feeling bored staying at home and just watch tv all day? Do they complain and keep bothering you? If your answer is YES, then I would like to suggest a simple solution for it.
Yesterday, my daughters and their cousin had a simple project of making our own Puppet Theater. Of course I helped them when we had to use a knife to cut things but most of the jobs were done by the kids.
Here are the things that we used to make the Puppet Theater:
A big box
Some coloured papers
A piece of shawl
How did we do it?
1- Draw a rectangular shape to make the screen. Make sure it is only taking 1/4 of the whole box.
2- Cut the the shape and you can see that you have the screen.
3- Draw a simple door at the back to have an easy access.
4- Decorate the front with some coloured paper. You can use your imagination to decorate it. My daughters decorated the theater with a house, some tall grass, the sky, some clouds, flowers and the sun.
5- Tape a shawl at both sides to cover the screen.
DO YOU WANT TO SEE THE FINAL PRODUCT?
HERE IT IS:
Please excuse the other things behind the box.
There's a dinasour walking to find some food.
When there's a theater, my kids and their cousin had an endless fun and they used their imagination to tell their stories using their soft toys and some figurines. Why don't you try this with your kids.
