Got a huge cardboard box you've been meaning to break down? Make a puppet theater instead! Let your kid decorate the theater with markers while you hunt down un-mated socks (you know you have a bunch). With a few leftovers from the craft box, socks become puppets with personalities of their own. The best part? Not only have your kids gotten busy building, they now have an excuse to exercise their imaginations and confidence by making up stories and acting them out.
