Ready to brighten up your next puppet show? Make new stage curtains! These easy-to-make curtains can highlight any story theme. Listen for the applause!
Choose and measure your puppet stage. You might use a ready-made puppet theater or build your own with cardboard, chairs, a table, or a desk.
<STRONG>Cut the fabric</STRONG>. Find white or light-colored fabric (a recycled sheet works well). Make sure the fabric is long enough to extend past the opening of the stage. Leave enough fabric at the top to wrap it around the wooden dowel, rope, clothesline, or other curtain rod. The fabric should be about twice as wide as the stage so you can gather it closed. Cut the fabric with Crayola® Scissors.
<STRONG>Decorate the curtain.</STRONG> Decide on a design and colors. Pick a theme that fits your next show (such as a bridge for The Three Billy Goats Gruff), or one that will work with several productions (such as a forest or landscape). Choose bright colors. You may want to plan for a left and right side of the curtain.
Place your fabric on white paper. Draw your design using Crayola Fabric Markers on the fabric. Air-dry the curtain overnight.
Draw a straight line down the middle of the curtain. Use scissors to cut the fabric down the middle.
<STRONG>Hang the curtain</STRONG>. Loop the fabric over the dowel (or other curtain rod) to form a hem. Attach the fabric to itself with Crayola School Glue. Air-dry the glue.
As soon as you write the script, make the puppets, and decorate the sets, you’re ready to stage your puppet show.
