DIY Puppet Theaters

Puppet Theaters




  • Shoebox
  • Acrylic or Craft Paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Craft Knife (for adult use only!)
  • Pencils & Paper
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Popsicle Sticks
  1. Cut an 8” x 2.5” rectangle out of one top of a shoebox (oriented so that the portion normally covered by the lid will be facing out)
  2. Paint the exterior of their shoebox to make first with a white base color. Then paint over the base color with the design that you would like on the outside of their puppet theaters.
  3. Cut out puppets from paper or fabric and glue them onto Popsicle sticks, so that they may be lowered into the opening at the top of the puppet theater.
  4. Paint or draw a backdrop for their play on a sheet of paper and put on your show!

Veronica Mars: The First Book in an Original Mystery Series

Maybe I’m late to the party on this one but I didn’t realize that there is going to be a Veronica Mars series to follow up the movie. It’s supposed to continue the character after the film, so this movie isn’t the last we will see of Veronica Mars a.k.a. 21st Century Nancy Drew/Comic Book Superhero fusion played by the marvelous Kristen Bell.

So obviously I preordered it immediately. And when is this movie coming out?? The book is coming out in February, so maybe the movie will come out before that?

This is going to be awesome.
