Homemade Puppet Theater

This weekend we decided to make a Puppet Theater
a 100% recycled

First we took a cardbox
and made a whole in the middle for the window,
then Jessica decided to decorated on one of the sides
with her beautiful drawings

then to put courtains on it,
we pocked two holes on each side
on the top of the window

then we used the tie wraps from the bread loaf
to hold a piece of wood dowell

After looking at it
Jessica decided to paint it
but she was a little dissapointed that she didn't have
pink anymore,
I took advantage of this and showed her

that red and white mixed together
makes pink

here is her painted puppet theater
of course she didn't want to cover
her beautiful drawing :)

we made courtains out of an old blouse
that I had and put it all together,
here is the finished project :)

Thanks for reading :)
