File Folder Puppet Theatres
I didn't cut the normal rectangular hole for my stage because it was a go-along for the book Down, Down the Mountain (part of our Five in a Row Co-op). I wanted the kids to be able to reenact the journey down the mountain to town. I scanned the characters from the book, printed them, and taped them to popsicle sticks. I taped a little pocket on the inside of one of the sides to store the puppets.
This would be a fun way to encourage kids to retell any story they had just read.
