About 5 years ago I bought a PVC Puppet Theatre at a yard sale ($2.00). The fabric was worn, but the bones of it were great. About the same time I picked up 4 curtain panels ($2.00) at a thrift store for our theatre. Then it sat in the back corner of my garage for FIVE years. Last week I pulled it out and washed the PVC theatre. I rewashed the curtains, cut and hemmed them to fit, and added new shower curtain rings ($1.29 My total cost was $5.50 (tax on hooks:) but only $1.50 this year). (My son in law said he thinks to buy the PVC elbows, tees and pipes would be under $15.00.)
With fanfare I presented the finished Theatre and container of puppets to Logan. WHAT A HIT! There have have been puppet shows and comedy and drama all week.
It takes a pretty big space in the family room, but when I put it away for another play day, it folds flat. (Unfortunately the container of puppets won't fold flat :(
Another project finished. I am now looking for a fish shower curtain so we can play fishing games, too, with our PVC theatre.
If you want a supply list, measurements and design of our theatre. Let me know.
