ALL ABOARD: WE’RE GATHERING STEAM
It’s time to create some shadow puppets and make a video with this week’s theme of TECHNOLOGY.
With this activity, your child will learn how to create a video and using stop-motion technology.
- video recording device
- paper or cardstock
- printable puppet template here
Print out the shadow puppet template or create your own! Cut out the outline of your choice (make sure to cut out the eye holes too). Now you will need to tape the skewer on the back of your puppet, this makes it easier to hold. Turn on the flashlight and use a big, blank wall as your stage. It’s time to put on a show! Once your child has practiced you can record the video and use a simple free video editor app to teach your child about video and editing technology.
If you try this with the children in your life, remember to share your creations with us on social media @childmuseumwpg
