What better way to keep 3 bored kiddos entertained during brownouts than to put on a halloween shadow puppet show! These halloween shadow puppets are intetended for our halloween party but since we couldn't think of anything more to do, I just brought them out to put on a show. I made up a scary story and to make them more amused, I incorporated their names in the story which made the youngest one squeal. lol! This experience brings back good old memories when I used to make shadow puppets and put on a show for a profit. Yep! Playmates and friends were willing to pay just to watch the show! hehehe! Those were the days when I was in grade school.
I used orange fabric for the screen.
Here's how I set up our mini shadow puppet theatre
Bored kids no more!
I cut out halloween characters and attached the wooden bbq stick to the cutout pieces using hot glue.
I used 2 flashlights and a candle to illuminate the setting.
I used double sided tape to keep large pieces in place like this spider web.
When the show ended, each of them took turns in putting their own halloween shadow puppet show. They made up funny scary stories!
