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. Print and cut the shadow puppets, attach the sticks, and let the story unravel on the walls of your very own playroom. Make a simple cardboard puppet 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!
