Lately my kids have been obsessed with puppets. They begged me to make them a puppet show where they could play with their puppets. My original thought was to buy a nice wooden one for them for Christmas but then I realized I have a perfectly good cardboard box sitting in my garage that my double stroller came in.
So, I got to work. I cut out a square hole in the front and cut a door in the back with the hinge side on the crease of the box so it will swing freely. Then I spray painted it red (their color request). I used some spare fabric and made two panels. I gathered the panels at the top and stapled them to the box.
It was a quick project but the kids think it is great and I love that I spent a total of $0 to make a perfectly good puppet show box. Now I can enjoy the kids imaginative stories every day.
