  • Copy Paper Box Shadow Puppet Theater | Carle Museum
    box not necessarily in the order I did them but how I would repeat the process in the future Mark a line about inch in from each edge on the bottom of the box Use a box cutter or mat knife to cut carefully cut on the line to turn your box into a window From here you could skip right to step 6 if you to keep it really simple Since copy paper boxes vary from brand to brand the easiest way to explain the next step is to say make it look like this Here s a stab at a written instruction Use the seams already present on the box as a guide to make a flap on each short side as pictured below Then lay the box on its side and open up the flaps Score across the long side of the cardboard so that it can unfold as pictured below Create a fancy symmetrical design for the top of your theater To do this I folded a long piece of paper in half cut a swooping line opened the paper again clipped the paper to the box trace the design to the cardboard then cut on the line with scissors Alternatively you could just draw it right on the cardboard and then cut it out I added some curlicues with a thick white paint pen after Tape the side flaps from the decorative top edge back to the side edges of the box Tape a piece of thin white drawing paper to the back of the box overlapping the hole you cut Light the box from the back and you re ready for a show For Susan s visit we put out black construction paper straws tape and scissors for making shadow puppets Guests of a wide range of ages had fun going back and forth between the puppet theaters and work table making adjustments to their puppets once they could try them out Our work study student Claire made a cereal box theater and modified one of our existing homemade puppet theaters by adding a thin paper screen and some cardboard supports to keep it from tipping over We also set up our light projector on a low table to use with the puppets which was a hit with our youngest guests The copy paper box theater worked the best because it was the perfect size for the puppets created and didn t tip over if a puppeteer bumped it Have you ever made a shadow puppet theater at home your in your class What materials did you use Thanks for stopping by and happy puppet making by Meghan Burch Tags Susan Schwake Puppets shadow puppets puppet theater black paper straws tape cardboard box This entry was posted on Tuesday December 22nd 2015 at 3 00 pm and is filed under Elementary School Found Materials Light Paper Special Guests and Artist Visits You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2 0
