So simple and classic and yet so fun! Shadow puppets can be made with your hands, toys, or paper cut outs. I found some fun shadow puppet inspiration to share with you today. A perfect fort activity I think!

How about this shadow puppet theater from Makedo – they have the how to and a free printable for you on their site!

Minieco also has some great printables!

You can find some educational printables here

I love how A Wednesday Afternoon folded a paper in half to punch eyes and cut out a mouth before having her kids design their own puppets

Some spooky templates from Chez Beeper Bebe

There are even some shadow puppets for purchase

  1. I LOVE this idea! so sweet! Your R2D2 "theatre" is to DIE for! Great gif to illustrate how it works too! so cool!

  2. This toy is one of my favorite that I used to pay when I was a child, a shadow puppet. I usually played it with my brothers and sisters. When we are experiencing power interruptions at home, that was the time we play it. Nice toy.
