Shadow puppets are a great thing to do at home by yourself or with family members. All you need is sunlight or a flashlight. Below is a picture of some you can try. You can also look at this short Youtube video to get started: https://youtu.be/Kz8wP2RYy64
Do you know any other ones not pictured? How many can you do? How many can your brother and/or sister do? How many can your parents/guardians do?
*Your hands might get tired very quickly trying to do these. The muscles in our hands are not used to doing these kinds of motions. So take as many breaks as you need to give your hands a rest. The more you try and practice the more you will work the hand muscles and the easier/longer you will be able to do them.
How did doing this activity make you feel? Do you want to continue practicing to get better?
REMEMBER HAVE FUN!
