Let your child's imagination go wild with puppets and shadows. This is a fun way to enjoy story telling and hand eye co-ordination.

Time: 15 minutes
Age: Any Age
Level: Medium

Sticky tape
Utility knife (optional)

Draw puppet outlines on paper.

Have children decorate and colour the puppets.
Cut out the puppets, and sticky tape a straw to each one.

Give to children, show them how to move the puppet near a wall, with light behind them by using a torch or natural lighting.

Watch the shadow puppets move and interact with each other.
Try telling a story and have your children use the puppets to act it out. Then ask them to make up a story of their own.
