Shadow puppets & Cricut template

Guys, I don’t care if I’m not 10, I’m shadow puppeting! At our glamp site we totally got into the puppet spirit with this adorable animals that you can print and tell stories with. Personally, I find everything more inspiring against a pink background. I just might be painting my walls pink soon. Maybe! 

There are two ways to make this project:

  1. Free Cricut files
  2. Free PDF printable that you can download and cut out yourself
Materials: black paper, craft knife or Cricut machine, bamboo skewer or stick, Cricut file download (click here), PDF download, tape or glue
For Cricut: 
Step 1: Upload the file onto your Cricut.
Step 2: Attach the skewer to the back of the puppet with glue or tape.
Handmade: 
Step 1: Print out the PDFs.
Step 2: Cut out the page with your scissors or craft knife.
Step 3: Trace the figures onto your black paper and cut out.
OR
Step 2: Put the PDF onto your black paper and cut out the two at the same time.

All you need is a flash light and darkness and a sheet and you’re good to go! Happy puppeting! 
We’ve had a good time craft glamping. Check out some of our other crafts!
