Shadow puppetry is beneficial for children of various ages, encouraging development of:
- literacy & memory
- imagination & creativity
- storytelling, oration & recitation
This set includes seven characters to stage the folk tale The Gingerbread Man, then two additional characters for staging the wonderful story The Gingerbread Baby by Jan Brett. Winter is a great time for culinary experiments, and Christmas season seldom passes without baking several batches of cookies to enjoy with the family and to exchange with friends. Paired with the book, it will make a lovely Christmas gift.
For free you will get two pdf files with designs of nine puppets (a gingerbread man, a gingerbread house, a boy, a woman, a man, a cat, a dog, a pig and a fox), as shown on the first picture. Print them, then cut out of stiff black cardboard and attach sticks to their backs.
