A few weeks ago my 7 year old made a TV out of LEGO and I thought, hey that’s a great idea! Today we recreated that idea and made a theatre.
We used a large baseplate to build upon.
I cut in half a sheet of paper (letter size) for our screen. We then built the base of the theatre a little bigger that the width of the paper. This height also gives some room for your hands to be hidden when putting on a puppet show.
For the frame that holds the paper we used 1 stud wide bricks and encased the paper.
We finished off our little LEGO puppet theatre with some roofing bricks.
Don’t forget the lamp!
Our props were on 2×2 bricks and stuck the baseboard and our LEGO mini figures were on popsicle sticks. A neat trick I saw in the Unofficial Learning with LEGO book.
The kids had tons of fun putting on a show! The bad guy ran up the ladder from the good guys, there were also pirates and a jail. Very entertaining. Oh! a skeleton too.
