This shoebox puppet theater is perfect for an impromptu rainy day performance. Cut a rectangle from the bottom of the box to create a frame, and then cut a series of three or four slots along one of the long sides of the box to accommodate the wooden skewers that will hold your paper puppets. Cut a smaller rectangle of cardboard with slots matching those on the top of the box; this will go inside the box to serve as a platform to hold the bottom of the skewers. Glue a small bead to the bottom of each skewer, then feed the skewers through both sets of slots, making sure that they slide smoothly from side to side. After that, the personalization and decoration is up to you!
