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



Materials
Paper
Sticky tape
Straws
Pens
Scissors
Utility knife (optional)

Method
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.
