Panto Shoebox Theatre
Make your own Jack and the Beanstalk adventures!
You will need:
- Print-outs (8 pages)
- 2 shoeboxes
- Sticky tape
- Coloured crepe paper (or you can use normal paper or felt or another fabric)
Remember to ask a Grown-up for help.
What to do:
Print out the backgrounds and characters from the panto and gather together some straws along with some crepe paper or other material for the curtains.
With a grown-up's help, make four holes in each side of the shoe box for your straws to fit through. Place one box on top of the other to create the stage.
Cut around your chosen background, and glue it to the back of the top box.
Carefully cut out the red crepe paper to make curtains, then some green paper to make grass at the bottom of the stage. Stick them to the box with glue.
Carefully cut out the characters you want to be the actors in your theatre. Push the straws through the holes you made earlier on the sides of the box. Then stick your characters to the ends of the straws with sticky tape. You can move your characters around on stage with the straws and play with your very own theatre set.
