Shadow Puppet Sheets Show 4

Great activity idea: Put on a Shadow Puppet Show! You can use many different things for your puppet characters!

Shadow Puppet Show

All you need is a bed sheet or large piece of thin paper. Shine a light from behind it, where you will be casting the shadows. Your audience will sit on the opposite side of it and see the shadows that you cast on the sheet.

Shadows can be created from many things:

  • Paper cutouts
  • Foam shapes
  • Silverware
  • Other Unusual items from around the house
  • Your hands!

Try a Shadow Puppet play with your created characters!
