Perform your favorite fairy tales using light, shadow and color!

Puppetry is a great way to get all kids involved with imaginative play. Kids who are shy about speaking in front of their peers can practice performing and public speaking while safely out of sight behind the curtain or stage. Budding writers can participate by writing original scripts for their peers to perform!

These puppets can be used in a myriad of different ways. Simply pop these beautiful die-cut figures out. Then punch out the die-cut sections that allow light to pass through the puppet to create a unique shadow.

Straight out of the package, they’re perfect for traditional shadow puppetry!

You can also use tissue paper or stained glass paper to fill in the openings in the puppets. Then you can use marker, crayon and paint to decorate the white spaces on the puppets.

Once your puppets are decorated, they are ready to perform all your favorite fairy tales!

Puppets filled with stained glass paper can also be used like traditional shadow puppets. Just make sure you use a powerful flashlight!

Shadow puppets are an especially great rainy-day activity, because low light and lots of time are a must for creating and performing a puppet show!
