Day #5: Cardstock Theatre

Perfect idea for a rainy day. Take a deck of cards that's a few cards short and make your own toy theatre. I had some playing cards lying around the studio. Literally -- I think my children left them out. Voila -- instant King and Queen! Cut out the characters you want; tape on some extra bits (a skirt, a cape, a bigger crown); attach a rod -- chopsticks are great for this. Then find some cardboard to make your own castle tower (I always wanted to live in a tower).
You can add bits and pieces to your characters using scrap materials.

Our valiant King will allow no harm to befall his Queen!

Or is it his Queen? (He might be on the lookout for the King of Clubs...)
