Cute and simple theater for your kids made out of sheets!



I SAW THIS GREAT IDEA ON FAMILY FUN'S WEBSITE! I LOVE IT! SORRY FOR THE SMALL PICS. THE SECOND PICTURE IS A DRAWING OF WHAT IT SHOULD LOOK LIKE. I THINK THIS WOULD BE FUN IN A TOY ROOM OR A BASEMENT! YOUR KIDS WOULD HAVE ENDLESS FUN WITH THIS :O)

CRAFT MATERIALS:
2 (6-foot) lengths of polypropylene clothesline
3 old sheets
Paint
Clothespins
Dozen 1 1/4-inch binder clips
Time needed: About 2 to 3 Hours


1. String up two parallel lengths of polypropylene clothesline 6 feet apart. Paint scenery on a background sheet, as we've done -- or pin on scenery cut from or painted on craft paper -- then use clothespins to attach the sheet to the line farthest from the audience.

2. For the curtains, suspend two sheets from the front clothesline using 1 1/4-inch binder clips hung at 1-foot intervals. The clothesline should go through the clips' triangular centers, allowing kids to slide the curtains open and closed for dramatic effect.
