Step 1:  Design the Theater

Using your eco-friendly packing tape, tape the box completely closed. Using your scissors, cut two large doors across the front of the box. Fold the doors to create a seam, so they will open and close easily. This will be the viewing window of your theater.

Step 2: Create the Puppet Slot

Cut a long rectangular hole in the rear back of the box. This will be the slot that your child’s hand will come up through to work the puppets. Make sure the hole is large enough to fit both of your child’s hands.

Step 3: Cover the Theater

Using the white eco-felt and glue, cover the front and sides of the theater (the back and bottom are optional).
