We love playing with shadows! This year S was given some beautiful shadow puppets for his birthday.
Today we made a theatre to use them in. First we cut a hole in the bottom of a sturdy box.
We taped half of a pillow case to the front of the box, securing it on place.
We initially used torches to project light into the back of the box but it illuminated only a small area.
Next we tried a desk lamp, where we could angle the light.
We spent the afternoon telling stories of knights, fairies and castles.
The last pictures were taken by one of the boys whilst the other one performed.
