Watch the following clip from Peter Pan where he is trying to find his shadow.


Use the template of puppets from Peter Pan to make your own shadow puppet.

What material makes the best shadow for Peter Pan? Use any materials you can find lying around your house. Some materials work well to make different effects for your shadow puppet.

If you would like to, you can make puppets from the other templates and create your own puppet show.


To make a screen, use a box and cut out the front – a cereal box works well. Cover with translucent paper to make the screen and hold your puppets behind the screen. Make sure your shine your light source behind the puppets.
