Shadow Play

Materials

  • Thick tape or thumb tacks
  • White sheet
  • Portable light
  • Dark room
Directions
  1. Hang up the sheet in a way that doesn't damage the wall or ceiling.
  2. Put the light behind the sheet.
  3. Turn off the lights and act out a play between the sheet and the light.
  4. Get a few family members or friends to be the audience and see if they can guess what play you are acting out.
  5. The audience might want to try acting as well!
Note: On a warm summer night, try hanging a sheet across the garage door (with the door open). The entire garage can be used as the stage.
