Making these shadow puppets is as simple as cutting out your favorite shapes and attaching them to wooden skewers! Your kids will love how easy they are to make… and have fun creating stories with their shadow puppets!
Black construction paper
Cutting Machine for shapes (I used my eClips2, if you have a Silhouette or Cricut, that would work as well)
OR scissors and stencils or animal print-outs
Optional: Book “Shadow Play”
Cut your shapes from the black construction paper using whatever technique you prefer.
Use a line of hot glue to secure them to the skewers.
Allow the glue to cool, then create fun stories using a flashlight to project the shadows onto the wall!
This was a fun craft for us to do after we read the beautifully illustrated children’s book “Shadow Play.” A fun way for children to use their imaginations with very simple toys.
