Make shift Puppet theatre

We have lots and lots of puppets, but we have never had a puppet theater to go along with it.  The other day as the kids were playing puppets I had an idea.

We have curtains hanging from a tension rod to divide the unfinished portion of our basement from the sort of finished area of the basement.  I lowered this tension rod to the right height and my son and his friend had so much fun putting on puppet shows for my daughter.  What a great way to help kids tell stories and have fun!

I think the tension rod was about $8.  This could be done very easily in any door way and a sheet or blanket could go over the rod.
