MakerKid's Club-Shadow Puppets and Theaters

In our Monday Morning First Grade MakerKid's Club we have been working hard on creating shadow puppets for the last several weeks.  This week we created our theaters and took everything home to share with family and friends over the holiday weekend.  

Decorating a shadow puppet theater stage.

Puppet theaters ready for the picking.  

Some of us working on puppets and others working on theater stages.

Hard at work.  We would check our puppets under the doc camera and iterate if they didn't look quite the way we wanted them to.

Loved seeing tweets from families that enjoyed their kiddos shadow puppet show.  I hope this encourages kids to make additional puppets and develop new stories and scenarios.
