Approximate Crafting Time:0:45
Supplies and Tools:
- Red and Black Duck Tape
- White Shower Curtain Liner
- 3M Reusable hooks
To Make the Puppet Theatre I begin by laying the the shower curtain out on the floor and drawing in pencil where I wanted the curtains to be.
Then using a pair of scissors I cut out a piece from the middle and along the bottoms of the curtain so we could open them a little more.
Next I used long strips of black tape to create the stage and red tape along the curtains.
I then took two 3M hooks, the kind that you can put up and easily remove and hung them at the right height in the jam of the doorway. I ran a rope through the metal grommets at the top of the shower curtain to tighten and strengthen the top. You could also use the rope to hang the whole thing but I found that the metal grommets fit perfectly over the hooks and held the theatre up better then the rope.
