If you already have a flashlight, then this is all you need in order to present The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse 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!
This set is based on the popular fairy-tale/fable The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse and includes two mice, a cat, an owl, a cityscape, a country landscape, and the moon.
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!
