DO YOU REMEMBER SHADOW PUPPETS?


Bud & I have been going out to dinner on Saturday with our kids & grandkids for as long as I can remember.  When our group was having coffee I would usually go out for a cigarette.  When the grandkids were small they would go outside with me.  Quite often I amused them by making shadow puppets.  Mine were pretty simple, like these:


I wish I had known how to do some advanced ones, like these:

  2. Really great shadow puppets there. I remember we used to make the dog and the goose and by moving our thumb up and down the goose would "honk" and the dog would "bark", with sound effects produced by the puppeteer of course.

  5. Our shadow puppets always looked like hands moving around. My siblings and I aren't very creative puppeteers.

    Love,
