Choose the shadow puppets that you want to make. The fish patterns are easier to cut than the seahorse, shark, octopus, and animated fish patterns
Download and print the pattern. Make a stiffer puppet by printing on cardstock instead of paper.
You'll notice that the patterns include right- and left-facing versions of each puppet (except the octopus and animated fish). Either make separate right and left puppets, or make two-sided puppets.
These printable patterns for shadow stick puppets are from the Stick Puppets and Animated Stick Puppets craft projects. See these craft projects for detailed instructions in how to make the shadow puppets.
Patterns are Adobe PDF files. The Adobe Reader is available for free.
All of Aunt Annie's project patterns are designed to be printed on standard letter-size paper (8.5"x11" or A4). When printing from Adobe Reader, you may need to select Auto-Rotate and Center or Choose paper source by PDF page size to ensure the best fit.
