Enjoy building and exploring with your kids!
We are experiencing a major heat wave, and one of our favorite ways to escape the heat is to go see a movie. My girls thought it would be fun for their stuffed animals to have a mini movie theater of their own. So we built one with our Melissa & Doug Unit Block Set!
Oh! Hello! Would you like to buy a movie ticket?
Perhaps you would like some popcorn too? Let me ring it up on my cash register ... that will be $2.00, please. (Wow, this movie theater is a bargain!!)
Word of this place has spread quickly. Almost all of the seats are filled!
The girls spent a very long time building and rebuilding their mini movie theater. They sold lots of tickets to every show!
Now, sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!
You can build a mini movie theater of your own using our Mini Movie Printable –it includes a template for the popcorn box, various signs, and a cash register template too. Fill the bottom of the popcorn box with pieces of paper, and the top with bits of air-dry clay. Use a yellow marker for “butter.”
