Project#19 Shadow puppets

Wednesday, 14 May 2008 by Irene Hoofs

..creating a shadow puppet show using silhouette cut-outs.

What you will need:
*1 sheet of black Bristol board
*coloured pencil, scissors, xacto knife, cutting board, masking tape
*scrap sticks
*white sheet and some thumb tacks
*a bright lamp

step one:
..take the black Bristol board and take the coloured pencil to draw your creature – cut out your image and ask an adult to cut out the small details with an exacto knife
step two:
..take the scrap wood and tape it to the back of your cut out.
step three:
..take a white sheet and either pin it between the door way or between two chairs.  Make sure it’s dark and shine a bright light on the back of the sheet and  the puppet show may begin – have fun!
