Are you all ready for a summer full of cereal box fun? I don’t know if it will get that bad around here but I’m finding more and more stuff to do with cereal boxes so get ready :)! One of those things is a cereal box puppet theater, which I found at the lovely Luxury Living Frugal Style…
All you need is an empty cereal box, scissors, paint, popsicle sticks and pictures to make into puppets.
- Cut the top flaps off of the cereal box and cut a square in the front panel large enough for a puppet show but not too large to damage the structural integrity of the box
- Have your kiddos paint the box whatever color they please…all we had was orange and yellow at the time…
- Print out some pictures and have your kids color them. Glue or tape them to the popsicle sticks to make puppets (have I mentioned before that we have 2 boys and they are obsessed with construction vehicles?!).
- You can also glue some curtains to your theater but those wouldn’t stand a chance with my boys so we left it without!
These can provide tons of fun while kids are stuck inside during the summer, plus you get to recycle those cereal boxes and if they break it’s no big deal…my favorite kind of crafts :) Another bonus is that the box provides perfect storage for all of the little puppets.
