If you already have a flashlight, then this is all you need in order to present the Dinosaurs 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!
In this set, you will get eight dinosaurs. From the Jurassic period – Stegosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Allosaurus and Pterodactyl; from the Cretacious period – Triceratops, Mosasaurus, Ankylosaurus and Tyrannosaurus Rex. Invite the shadow the shadows of extinct beasts to roam across the walls of your nursery, as kids learn about dinosaurs and tell stories about them!
