Simple Doorway Puppet Theater

I guess I have the Nick Jr. website to thank for this idea too. They have a pattern for a fancy little felt puppet theater, to be hung on a tension rod across a doorway. The pattern was a little fussy for me, but the use of the tension rod, caught my attention.

We picked up two of them at the local big box store, for $3.89 a piece. I added a valance, and single panel of a curtain set, that used to hang in the girls room when they were younger (I think you could just as easily drape a sheet over one rod, in a pinch, though).

Throw in a few puppets... attentive audience...

...and you have a really simple, and inexpensive, doorway puppet theater.

It's great to be a homeschooler.
