Shadow Puppets: Great for a rainy weekend

This weekend is looking like it may be a rainy day weekend. So Virginia and I are finding ourselves stuck inside. I have been testing a few different projects for my art class. Also trying to come up with fun crafts to do at the Macaroni Kid festival coming up that Sign and Doodle will have a table at. So today I decided to finally try out shadow puppets. I have seen them on blogs and on pinterest and just love them.

Virginia picked out the mermaid. So I googled an image of a mermaid and traced it onto a piece of paper. Then cut it out and taped the paper to a drinking straw. It was that simple. Virginia had a blast playing with it on the wall. I found a card board box and put a white sheet of paper in it for her to use as a theater. She drew waves on the paper to use as a background. Now searching for a princess image as our next puppet.
