Renee from FIMBY submitted a great shadow play learning experience that she discovered in the June edition of Your Big Backyard.
• Cut animal shapes out of thick paper, we used file folders and cardstock.
• Punch holes for decoration or to define features, like eyes.
• Hot-glue a popsicle stick to the bottom part.
• In a darkened room shine a flashlight on a plain wall. Hold puppets in front of light so they cast shadows.
Her daughter was inspired to write a poem, which is a wonderful literacy connection.
