The hand shadow puppets are part of the Les Ombres (shadows) range from Moulin Roty. Contained in the attractively designed package are seven shadow puppets. On one side the black card is used to cast the shadow with the use of some form of light source, such as a desk lamp and on the other side are drawings of hands that will help to teach your little ones how to shape their own hands to create different animals and creatures for their shadow stories, without the use of the cards.
The hand shadow puppets come in seven shapes – a wolf, rooster, donkey, rhino, elephant, rabbit and seagull. Project them onto a blank wall, ceiling or even the inside of a tent and allow your children’s imaginations to run wild as they use verbal language skills as well as creativity and imagination to create their own stories with these hand shadow puppets. They can be combined with other night-time shadow favourites – dinosaur shadows, castle shadows, Paris shadows and heroes shadows for enhanced stories and fun.
Puppets can encourage even the most quiet or shy children to communicate and can also be useful in the development of social skills by allowing the child to explore and interact with different personalities in a natural way.
The hand shadow puppets are a great way to bring stories to life and provide great learning experiences because they can become anyone or anything your child wants. The world children create with puppets is entirely their own, a world without boundaries that they can freely explore. Puppets can help boost creativity and stimulate kid’s imaginations from preschool age up to the early teen years.
An added benefit of the shadow puppets is the development of motor skills used when children manipulate them to tell their stories. Your child can learn more about the physical qualities of light and distance through guided use of these puppets with an adult.
These hand shadow puppets are part of Les Jeux range from Moulin Roty, which features classic and timeless toys that have been brought up to date. “Yesterday’s toys for today’s children”, they will be sure to become part of treasured childhood memories as well as re-acquaint adults with their childhoods!
