DIY Puppet Theater

Puppet theaters are fun for the whole family! It's a great way to tell stories, sing songs, and let our imaginations run wild. I made this puppet theater a couple of years ago (before I knew about blogs so I don't have step-by-step pictures). This design uses curtain tension rods to support the theater in a doorway. An easy version of the same concept would be to use a kitchen curtain:

Take one curtain panel that is at least 36" long
Insert a tension rod into the top
Fit the rod into a doorway (a spot with room for the audience)
Move the rod to the desired height making sure it touches the floor
Your puppet theater is ready. Oh, what stories they will create! Aside from being very easy to assemble, this puppet theater is easy to store and takes up little room. (Bear lost an eye in the making of this post, but will be on the mend soon.)
