the story of: the bremen town musicians puppets
When I shared the story of the Bremen Town Musicians the other day, I included some pictures I took of the characters in shadow puppets. They are really easy to make, and I've got some templates and simple instructions so that you can make them too!
Oh, and I wanted to add that making simple, non-moving shadow puppets of any kind is as easy as this: Find a photo with a strong shape or silhouette. Trace around it, and cut from black paper. Now you can make do a puppet show of just about anything!
For a lovely look at more complex shadow puppets, specifically those for use in film, be sure to check out Annekata's recent post. So charming!
