- Corrugated board
- Die cut (NOTE: If you don’t have a die cut machine, trace the figures on cardstock, cut them out with scissors and tape the skewer to the back.)
- Bamboo skewers
- Light source- use in sunlight (if possible) to cast a shadow on the ground. A spotlight or shop light will work to cast a shadow on a wall. The flashlight on your phone will do in a pinch.
- Use the die cut to cut out several people shapes. Be sure that the flutes of the cardboard run head-to-toe so that the skewer can be inserted in the feet.
- Insert a skewer into the base of each figure.
TIP: To cut the cardboard on a die cut place the die at a slight angle. If you have the roll-through type, gently rock the roller back & forth to assure complete cut.
Encourage the kids to use the puppets to reenact the Bible story or act out how the Bible truth might be applied.
