Art and Design

Create your very own shadow puppets!

On pieces of card or paper, draw the outlines of some people at home. Once you have done this, cut these out and attach them to some sticks. Use a light source to project the shadows onto a sheet or a wall.

Imagine you are on an adventure and act it out.

We look forward to seeing some of these on our Greenways Twitter!

Challenge: Is it possible to add colour to your shadow puppets? Prove it.
