Shadow puppet cutouts

You are welcome to use these cutouts for shadow puppetry performances at home or in your classroom. Simply print them out on card stock paper. The color of the paper is not important because any color makes a shadow. If you do not have card stock paper you can print this out on normal paper and trace the cutouts on poster board (black poster board makes the darkest shadow).

You need a pdf reader on your computer to be able to see and print out these documents.
