Submitted by jaime19861 on Sun, 03/15/2015 - 15:18

My niece's 4 year birthday was coming up, so I decided I would make something for her. I looked through my wood scraps and tried to come up with a project that would be quick to make and would make a 4 year old happy. I saw Land of Nod's Tabletop Theater and I knew it would be perfect! My measurements are not exactly the same as the Land of Nod version because I was using the scrap wood that I had on hand, but it worked out great! Not including painting time, this can be built in just a couple hours. You can find the step by step tutorial on my blog.

I used all scrap wood to make mine. If you had to buy the wood, you could probably get it for around $5.00
