Shadow Puppets

This was a fun activity I did with a group of students.  We made puppets from card and paper fasteners.  Some limbs were movable and some puppets were cut out as whole pieces.  I attached a large piece of fabric between two music stands and brought in a lamp plus a flash light.  This meant shadows were strong enough for a performance.  The collaborative event had everyone taking part and drawing skills and craft weren’t crucial as any sticky tape or construction was hidden from view.

My family and I equally had fun in the sunshine, making shadows and patterns with our bodies.
