Check out this post to read all about the 30 Day to Hands on Play Challenge.
Did you read my post about Day 14's Challenge? It was to act out a story (we did shadow puppets) we had so much fun that I promised the girls we'd make a shadow puppet theater. I had no idea that Day 15 would be playing with junk! It's a two for one! The idea for the shadow puppet theater came from a fabulous blog called Red Ted Art, if you haven't taken the time to check out Red Ted Art, you are seriously missing out!
The main component of the theater is a cereal box, luckily we had just finished a box of cereal that morning!
While the glue on the cereal box was drying I brought out all the "junk" so we could start making the puppets.
We decided we would make puppets for two stories
The Billy Goats Gruff
and underwater theme
The girls had a blast telling stories with it
Daddy even got in on the story telling
(not his strong suit)
and was able to relax and enjoy it
more so than reading out of a book
What have you made out of junk?
Are you following along with the challenge? It's not too late!
