I noticed that a lot of my posts lately have been about my husband and his activities with Anna. I am really proud of him and feel that our daughter is extremely lucky to have such a creative papa. On the other hand, he gets a chance to relive his childhood and do some of his favorite activities again. He was talking to me before about making a puppet theater for Anna. I happened to make one stick craft with her, and she brought a paper bag puppet from her preschool and clearly liked to play with both of them. So this weekend my husband got serious about his theater project. That's how the theater looked in the beginning - a repurposed box from a mini vacuum cleaner.
Anna was very excited to participate in making the theater. Here she is painting it:
Papa took over eventually and painted the rest of the theater. We let it out to dry while Anna "pretended" to take a nap (that didn't work out, she was too excited about the theater. Papa also drew a background and let Anna add some stickers. He was so motivated that he already started making more stick puppets for the show. Here is a finished result:
And here is a funny picture of Anna enjoying her first puppet theater show. She was totally mesmerized. So much better than TV :)
