Do you remember being a kid and trying to make hand shadow puppets? Or, maybe you’ve tried as an adult? Either way, it can be a super fun bedtime activity, but it can also be a real challenge twisting and curling your fingers into recognizable shapes! We decided to make it easier by designing our own shadow puppet printables. Simply download the PDFs, print, cut-out, attach to craft sticks, and – voila! Bedtime fun for everyone!
Not sure what to do with your cute, little critters? Find storybooks at your local library about sleepy sheep, turtles, ladybugs, and owls (print up multiple sheets of puppets if needed). Poems and songs are options, too. Of course, using your imagination and encouraging your child to join in sometimes creates the most magic. And, pull out your Cloud b plush to join the fun, too! Sleep Sheep, Twilight Turtle, Twilight Ladybug, and Nighty Night Owl are the stars of this puppet show!
Enjoy! And, let us know in the comments how you’ve used shadow puppet printables for a better bedtime!
