my preschool class needs a puppet theater
Step 1: Multi Use Dramatic Play Prop
cardboard box Box size Lx66in Wx30in Dx5in this one come from a truck bed cover.
so I got a box now what ?
Whenever I get a box I try to imagine what it could be .this box will make a awesome theater and much more
draw the window but before cutting think about how you can use the window scrap
I measured my window to fit the shortest and tallest child in my classroom
Step 2: Multi Use Dramatic Play Prop
if we fold the window scrap it can make a nice shelf
Step 3: Multi Use Dramatic Play Prop
How about a window topper
fold cardboard above window in half cut in 4 inches on each side
scallop bottom edge i did mine double the with of duct tape because I had enough blue and white to make stripes
note. I didn't start glueing yet event thought I knew were i want to glue just in case i need to change something
Step 4: Multi Use Dramatic Play Prop
we are almost 1/2 way done!
we need support or are window/theater will fall over
measure and fold the other half of box to make box
i wanted mine to fold in for easy storage so i made it shorter than the window
time to glue and add any decorations so far besides the duck tape I only added contact paper on window shelf and counter shop
Step 5: Multi Use Dramatic Play Prop
open for business
we are on a pet unit so we made some signs to make a vet office
we used clipboards to sign in and stuffed animals for pets the children love it next it will be a fruit and veggie stand and don't forget we can always use it for a puppet theater
