Materials

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Print out the puppet theater templates and puppets.

  2. Step 2

    Collapse both cereal boxes until they are flat. One cereal box will serve as the skate park background and the other will be the ground.<br><br> Select a box to serve as the park background and fold back the bottom flaps. Once folded, the cereal box should stand on its own. Cut off the top flaps of the cereal box.

  3. Step 3

    Help your kids paste the puppet theater background templates together and affix them to the cereal box.

  4. Step 4

    Print the ground printable, cut and use to cover the second cereal box. Once covered, apply glue to the bottom flaps of the skate park background and affix it to the ground. (See photo for reference).

  5. Step 5

    Set the skate park 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 skate park adventures can begin!
