In this video Ellie shows you how to make colourful shadow puppets, and performs her circus shadow show!

First you'll need to build your shadow theatre. You can download instructions on how to do this here: https://bit.ly/2VNhqEp

Learn how to master a basic shadow puppet design in this video: https://youtu.be/2RyI5-B-SKw

To make your coloured shadow puppets, you will need: paper, scissors, tape, glue, a pencil, felt tip pens, a paintbrush, some cooking oil and a torch (a phone torch works fine).

This is a craft activity you can do at home, for anyone ages 3 and above. For more shadow puppetry inspiration and resources, visit: https://littleangeltheatre.com/schools-and-community/at-home-resources/shadow-puppetry/
