The Princess and the Pea Shadow Puppet Printables

$0.00

This set includes four pdf files with five uniquely designed shadow puppets: Princess, Prince, Queen, a big bed and a castle for staging the fairy-tale The Princess and the Pea by Hans Christian Andersen. Read below for more details.

Description

Shadow play is an activity with a powerful visual component that can engage the whole family. It is an ancient form of storytelling in which puppets are held between a source of light and a translucent screen. As a result crisp shadows are cast on the screen, and a puppeteer can make them talk, dance and act. Babies and toddlers will enjoy watching the performance, and older children will delight at creating their own shows.

In the evening, we take our shadow puppet theatre out (check here how to make one), and as twilight turns into night, the enchanting and mysterious play begins.  I love the melancholic tone of Andersen’s fairy-tales. They seldom portray any horrifying acts of violence, but their characters seldom find their “happily ever after”, and not for the lack of trying. More about this project here.

For free you will get three pdf files with designs of five puppets (Princess, Prince, Queen, a big bed and a castle), as shown on the first picture. Print them, then cut out of stiff black cardboard and attach sticks to their backs, as described here. If you want to buy these puppets, already cut, please, check this page!
