It’s no secret that we love shadow play. I remember creating my first shadow photo back in 2018 while Norah was a teeny one still! Last weekend I decided to set up the play tent and turn it into a spooky Halloween shadow puppet theatre. It was so simple and involved 2 torches and some homemade shadow puppets.
To make the shadow puppets you just need some card and these printouts. Either print directly onto card or print on paper and cut out. You may need to use a craft knife for the small intricate bits.
It was such simple fun but the girls and I adored it.
You could also design your own puppets. Make and cut them yourself. As long as you have skewers to stick them to and shine the light behind them it will work! Give it a try!
