Create your own shadow puppet theatre!

Make your own shadow puppet theatre!

With a few simple materials, you can now create your own show.

Cut a window in a simple cardboard box. 
Glue a white sheet of paper on the back - that's the base of the theatre where that play can begin.

You can decorate the theatre to your liking and create a nice front piece.
Cut the animals out of thick paper or cardboard, the easiest is to use black paper.
Glue them on a wooden stick or paper straw. If you don't have a straw or stick, just roll up a piece of paper to use as a stick.
Draw a landscape or a forest as a background and place it in the theater.
Put a bright lamp behind the screen and imagine away your own stories with the animals!
