Outdoor puppet theatre
Operation: Create an outdoor play wonderland - Phase 8
Outdoor Puppet Theatre & so much more!!
Firstly, I should mention, that I have grander plans for this little space in our outdoor area. I know, there is only literally about a metre beside the custom built weatherproof storage unit and beneath the clothes line - but luckily, kids are little people, and love miniature everything:-)
I found this old art easel thrown out by the roadside early one Sunday morning on our way to swimming lesson, skidded to a stop, boot and seat belt released simultaneously, and in a flash it was shoved in around the pram - in all its imperfect beauty!
What do I love about it?
-It fits perfectly at the end of our outdoor space
-It is easily moved to access the storage cupboards
-It doesn't get in the way of the clothes line
-It can be repositioned anywhere outdoors actually
-The black and whiteboards are in terrible, disintegrating condition - but that's ok - material or plastic or card could easily be taped on to serve as a canvas, or it could be used as a frame for weaving materials or draping large plant fronds over
-It is such a cute little puppet theatre!
-It houses B's tipper truck and motorbike so well- like a little automotive garage!
-It is a perfect hiding nook
-With a kid sized chair and a large sarong draped over - it is a fun outdoor quiet spot to read or have a cool drink and a snack!
-It's quite simply something different, outdoors, to spark imagination and add to the kid friendly play space!
