Puppet Theater

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have any links/advice on how to make a puppet theater for the kids. So far my kiddos have been going behind the couch and having their puppets peak over. We're going to be getting rid of the couch soon (age!) and I want to give them a puppet theater as a gift this year. I have heard of some easy portable ones, and some people have made doorway puppet theaters as well.

I just picked up a cute pattern for a puppet theater that fits in your doorway from a tension rod. It's a McCall's Pattern #4796.

Good luck!

I just took a small tention rod and sew'd a hem on one cut end of some fabric.
I put it in the doorway to see how long I wanted it, marked it, took it down and hemmed the end.
My DS loves to play with it and also pretend it's a magic door.
I think I bought 1 1/2 yards but you prob won't need that much.
HTH,
Julie

I'm trying to get my husband interested in making a Floor Puppet Theater like this one. It looks fairly easy - strips of 1x4 and thin sheets of plywood and hinges to make it foldable. I think hardware stores sell chalkboard paint for the front.

When I was a kid we got a new fridge, the box it came in was great. We just cut a door in the back and a window in the front and whalla pupet theater/playhouse. Decorating it ourselves was as much fun as the shows we put on. A big cardboard box has to be one of the best playthings ever made.
