  1. I want to my students to help make one. They can help paint and decorate.They just need a place to perform with all the puppets.

  2. Fantastic.  My first stage was an old refrigerator box.  It was great because it held two or three puppeteers.  Thanks for doing this.

  3. This was very helpful for my language arts project because I was looking for some ideas but couldn't find any until I came across this video. Thanks AlaskaGranny

  4. Alaska granny could you please give the YouTube kingdom more of your awesome things because I have lots of boxes to make things out of.

  5. Dammit…I'm going to buy some large home appliances just to get some big boxes so I can do this. Beautiful. Thanks.

  6. I love that you didn't edit the end…I would totally try to stand up and knock the whole thing over….lol….LOVE this….going to make one for my classroom. We are studying Jim Henson and the muppets (we made sock puppets last week). I have some cardboard boxes left over from a big online order a while back and I think this would be a great project. Thank you!!

  7. I am planning a puppet show for the kids this coming May for an annual family reunion and thanks so much for this great idea😊😊😊😊😊😊😊
