a box and wooden spoons

We have all kinds of junk lying around the house, so it is always fun to make use of the junk and come up with something entertaining. A few wooden spoons suddenly became the main characters of a show…
the puppets
And a box became a theatre…

To create the characters we used: colored pencils and colored wooden spoons.
To create the theatre: colored pencils, a small box, scissors, lots of happy tape, markers, scrap piece of fabric (sewn into tiny curtains), and a dowel.
It is all so easy and provide for countless hours of entertainment and as proof, yesterday evening, Ben and I were treated to a special show. You may be getting one tomorrow too!
