Step 1:

Cut off outer lid and top, side flaps of the ThredUp box. Then cut out a rectangle shape from the green lid to create the stage. For the pink curtains, we recycled two panels from our pink refrigerator sticker set. Cut into curtain shape and use a darker pink crayon to draw vertical lines to make curtain folds. Use scalloped scissors to cut the bottoms of the curtains. Place curtain stickers on the sides of the box.

Step 2:

Use scalloped scissors to make rolling hills. Glue to blue construction paper sky. Glue cotton balls onto blue sky to make puffy clouds. Then, glue entire backdrop to the inside of the ThredUp box. We covered all 3 sides of the interior of the box.

Step 3:

Cut a hole at the bottom of the ThredUp box for the hand puppets the hole can also be used for a flashlight to create dramatic stage lighting. Place finger puppets (you can also make your own) on to craft sticks. And, you’re ready to go on with “The Greatest Show On Earth Day.”
