Puppet Theatre!

We are so happy to welcome to newest "addition" to our family...
Photobucket
A handmade puppet theatre!
We had a medium sized wooden coffee table that was not being used in our playroom...
I sat and stared at it one day; hoping to discover what it was "meant to be"...
a few days later I was begging Jay to help me cut wood for it!
Photobucket
Very simple....3 pieces of wood, 45 inches tall, 4 inches wide.
Securely screw 2 of the pieces into the sides of the table..
the remaining piece is screwed across the top, if you wish..
Photobucket
Purchase (or repurpose) a bedsheet or large pieces of fabric from a second hand store to drape..
I was lucky enough to find a nice peach colored fabric scrap...I have observed that this is a color so often found in Waldorf Kindergartens...and I find it so soothing and lovely.

I am excited to start looking for stories to bring to life...
I have a few in mind, but I am looking forward to your suggestions!

  2. This is cool. Have you done any training with puppets? I was invited to train with a group - and I am thinking about it. It is a very new area for me -- not sure how I would be at it.

    I have been working on storytelling -- I enjoy that very much.

    I love handy husbands!

  7. Very nice. I'm sure your little one will enjoy many fun plays. My young son enjoys simple nursery rhymes on our feltboard. They would surely work well as a puppet show, especially ones like Jack Be Nimble, As I Was Going to St. Ives, etc. One could make up a short story centered around the poem. I am always finding new things to make and do from you. Now I will put "make a puppet theatre" on my growing to-do list :)

  12. What a great idea! How about 'Peter and the Wolf'? Too ambitious?
