This months author is Laura Numeroff. We have been having fun reading each of her books that we have in the house. the girls picked If You Give a Moose a Muffin for our book to do an activity. We did a repeat of something we had done over the winter break. We had done some shadow puppets with Safari Ltd. They saw the part of the book that had the puppet show and wanted to do the shadows on the walls and have shadow puppets.
What you need: Safari Ltd or any other figure that stands, small table, flashlight and blank wall.
We had been playing with the new Safari Ltd figures. We were taking pictures of them in groups with new and old. It was a lot of fun. They had all cats, reptiles, farm, and various other themes. We had a fun time of it. During this play and taking the pictures, the girls noticed shadows on the wall from the flash. Our play turned into doing shadows.
We set up the table and got a flashlight. We shined the light on the figure and took pictures.
We started by setting up simple scenes for the play. It was load of fun. You can see some of the shadow play from our time. We did this over several nights.
You can never know what fun you will have. We did a few with ponies and dinosaurs as well this last time. It was lots of fun to make our own shadow theater.
What kind of puppet show would you do?
