Week 9: Box Theatre

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This week we’ve come up with a simple fun way to make your own box theatre.   All you need is an old tissue box – preferably a flat rectangular one, but a small square box one could work too.  Cut two or three slits along the long sides – you could do them in the short sides too.  Cut an image out of a magazine or draw your own scene and push it through the hole at the front to make a backdrop.  You can add more shapes to create a 3D effect for your scenery.  Draw your characters or find some pictures in an old magazine and cut them out.  Stick them on stiff bits of card, or a lolly stick if you have some, then push them through the slits so you can move then around your scene.  Have fun creating lots of different shows with your characters and try making different scenes for different stories.
