Mommy & Me: Portable Puppet Theater

Portable Puppet Theater1Jonah and I have had some puppet fun this week! I got tired of our fancy puppet theater that kept coming apart and made up a portable, easily stored Puppet Theater with a science project display board. Now Jonah can play puppets whenever he feels like it, without Mommy having to get everything set up. He’s loving the independence he’s gained…and so is Mommy! He’s been retelling a few of his favorite stories which encourages all kinds of literacy skills.

Happy Mommy & Me time! Go enjoy your kids!

  1. I still love puppet shows. I think because you can be so spontaneous. My kids and I use
    our closets or a table as our stage. We do not have such a fancy sage like you but I think moms just have to try it. Its something different and fun.

  2. I have an extra board like that in the school room…fun idea!
    Going to let the big kids entertain our Little 🙂

  3. What a great idea! After a few times of running around town trying to find a science board the night before a project was due, I made it a habit to keep a spare one in the closet. Now I know what to use it for now that we’re done with science projects! Thanks for sharing.

    • Let me know if you make one! I’d love to see it! Enjoy! (Oh, and keeping an extra science board around is brilliant for last minute projects!)

  4. very cute idea…my kids used to love to put on puppet shows when they were toddler and preschool aged…fun fun!

Thanks for visiting!I had been starting to feel better…thought I had turned a corner with the Hyperemesis. The home health nurse that calls for daily updates on my weight and ketones got all giddy and started talking about weaning me off the Zofran Pump. I thought I was ready, even started doing things like laundry again. Woohoo! In a moment of extreme excitement, I cleaned the bathroom. Mr. HBH was so excited…he thought he was being relieved of his extra duties that have been piled on him. (Can we all take a collective sigh of thanks for Mr. HBH and the wonderful man that he is? Amen.) Jonah was basking in the glory of having his happy-go-lucky mommy play with him and make puppet theaters. […]
