Want to let your kids show their creative side? Without a mess? Why not have them host a puppet show! It’s OK if you don’t have a nice fancy puppet theatre- you can easily make your own by throwing a blanket over a chair and have the kids hide behind it! The smaller kids, as we found out, may not be able to reach the top of the chair easily…..you can see how my son fixed that problem later! You can also consider hanging a string across the room with a blanket on it!
Meet Mr. Police Officer & Boca Beth!
My son couldn’t get his puppets above the back of the chair very easily, so he decided to hide under the blanket ON the chair and then stick his puppets out!
Puppets do not have to be fancy or expensive for kids to play with them. You can find puppets at the dollar store, craft stores, made from old socks, or even made from brown paper bags!
