Default Finger Puppet Theater

Supplies needed:
A large, empty cereal box
Poster paint (one color) Paint brush
Old newspapers (to protect the table)
Colored construction paper (or scraps of fabric) for the curtains
A pencil

Cut the top off a cereal box (this will be the bottom of the theater).
Using poster paint, paint the box (use old newspaper to protect your work surface). Let it dry completely.
Cut a rectangular hole on one side of the box -- this will be the stage of your theater. Leave at least 2 inches of the box so the box will not fall apart.
Using colored construction paper, draw and cut out curtains for your theater.
If you'd like, use small rectangular scraps of fabric instead of the construction paper.

Glue the curtains to the box. Cut a tiny rectangle of contrasting color paper for the pretend curtain tie-back. For the fabric version, use a twist-tie as a tie back.
You now have a tiny theater that is useful for putting on shows with finger puppets or popsicle stick puppets.
