I made a puppet theatre out of a laptop box that has a handle on top. Cut out the front,made a couple of curtains,covered the front of box with duct tape to make it stronger. Then I cut out a 3-sided square in back but left it attached at the bottom so the box will close back up. I used 2 shishka bob sticks as my curtain rod; taped the pointed ends together in the middle, and poked it thru the top edges.I used velcro sticky kind and attached it to a heavy zip lock bag and then attached the other side to my box back flap with my sewing machine, so they have a waterproof bag to store the puppets right in their own box. My grands loved it. they had quite a show and was very inexpensive entertainment for all of

They will have loads of fun - as long as they have someone to watch them perform.
