Puppet Theater at Discount School Supply

Hi, I’m Brooke Higgins, Marketing Communications Coordinator for
Discount School Supply. I have two young children at home, ages 2 and 4, which means I can do “market research” all the time!

When I brought home the Set of 9 Super Plush Washable Animal Hand Puppets with Feet one day, my kids jumped for joy. They fell in love with the plush animals and they soon wanted to do their own puppet show at every chance.

We crafted our own version of the Tabletop Theater from a large cardboard box. We decorated it with BioColor® Paint, glitter glue and some foam shapes . The kids even gave our theater a name: “Alien Space Theater.” They did most of the work and we had a blast putting it together. But the fun was just beginning!

Now we pull out the Alien Space Theater every so often and put on our own puppet shows. Even if we don’t pull out the theater, the kids will put a blanket over some chairs to make their own theater for a show. They shout out “Puppet Show, Puppet Show!” and take turns presenting a puppet show to each other. My 4-year-old likes to sing and dance with the puppets and the 2-year-old follows suit, (though admittedly he has less of a song and dance repertoire!)

I highly recommend a set of puppets; we’ve found it to be a great way to foster creativity and encourage sharing. We’ve had so much fun with our Animal Hand Puppets, and I hope you do too!
