We live in Arizona where it is warm 98% of the time. It has been exceptionally cold this week. We normally walk to the park and play outside a lot but we've had to stay busy inside because of the cold weather. Today I made a little puppet theatre out of a cardboard box and some felt. I'm sure you have plenty of boxes from holiday gifts that have not yet made it to recycling. Go find one and make a puppet theatre for those cold rainy days!
I found a narrow box and cut off the bottom and a window in the front. Then I cut out felt grass, trees, sun, and clouds. I attached them to the box with my hot glue gun. I found a few other things in my craft room (dragonfly stickers, ladybug embellishment, felt bunnies and birds, and paper flowers). They are also glued on with the glue gun.
I simply tacked it to the wall in my daughter's play room. Then we had a puppet show.
She loved it!
This was a very quick project and I didn't purchase anything to make it!
