If you already have a flashlight, then this is all you need in order to present Beauty & the Beast shadow puppet show. Open the set, attach the sticks provided, and let the story unravel on the walls of your very own playroom. Add a cardboard box with a parchment paper screen stretched across an opening to make a theatre, and you can stage spectacular performances for friends and family!
Shadow puppetry is beneficial for children of various ages, encouraging development of:
- literacy & memory
- imagination & creativity
- storytelling, oration & recitation
Most importantly, playing with puppets while telling your favourite stories is great fun for parents and grandparents who want to connect with their children in a creative way. Let the playful shadows frolic across the walls and bring the magic of ancient theatre into your playroom!
