How to Make

  1. Paint the wooden frame with a layer of orange paint and leave to dry.
  2. Cut out a range of halloween shapes from a sheet of black card, and cut out the eyes and other features to create a silhouette.
  3. Stick the characters to a wooden craft stick with double sided tape.
  4. Cut out a piece of tracing paper slightly larger than the inside of the frame. Turn the frame upside down and attach the tracing paper to the back of the frame.
  5. Put the small wooden stick into the hole at the back of the frame so it stands on its own, then hold the puppets behind the frame.

Top Tip

Shine a torch behind the frame to make the shadows really stand out.
