When an evil wizard locks Don Quixote away in Story Castle, Lady Knight Dora goes on a quest to save the day! Now your little explorer can play out their own adventure when you craft this simple castle out of cereal boxes.
Dora the Explorer Tues-Fri at 9:30AM ET on Nick
Print out the puppet theater templates and puppets.
Collapse both cereal boxes until they are flat. One cereal box will serve as the castle and the other will be the grassy floor.<br><br> Select a box to serve as the cove and fold back the bottom flap. Once folded, the cereal box should stand on its own. Cut off the top flaps of the cereal box.
Help your kids paste the puppet theater castle templates together and affix them to the cereal box that was cut to serve as the castle.<br><br> Allow time to dry and cut the castle towers and affix them where indicated.
Print multiple copies of the grassy floor printable, cut and use to cover the second cereal box. Once covered, apply glue to the bottom flaps of the castle and affix it to the ground. (See photo for reference).<br><br> Fold along the lines of the bush printables and glue the tab to the floor in front of each of the protruding towers.
Set the castle aside to dry, and cut out each of the characters. Create the base of the puppet by folding up the solid black line, then fold the character down the center, apply glue to one side and firmly press both sides together. This will create a double-sided puppet that stands (glue should not be applied to the base of the puppet). <br><br> When the puppets dry, your child's storybook adventures can begin!
