unplugged: shadow puppets

How is your Unplugged weeks going so far? We’re loving following along on the #unplugged feed, so many wonderful ideas to get us through the day! Here’s our next activity that turns your doorway into the best theater in town.


If you’ve ever put on a shadow puppet play at bedtime, you already know it’s a huge hit. Our kids love to see our butterflies, bull dogs, and foxes dancing on the wall. So we decided to create our very own Shadow Puppet theater! We’re sharing the step-by-step instructions and free printable today on Spoonful. Check out the full post here.

Our boys got a huge kick out of creating a play with their woodland creatures. Who knew there was a heap of bad guys, rocket ships, and karate chop sounds to be had in the forest? Download the Woodland Creatures and Scenery printable here.

Also this week on Spoonful: A brunch-style Easter Egg Hunt party we threw that was a huge hit for all ages. We’re certain we’re making crepes for every party from here on out, everyone gets their favorite fillings and toppings, and there’s minimal prep work, what’s not to like?  Also check out 10 super easy ideas for your Easter-themed wreath. Which one is your favorite? We’re leaning toward the one made out of almonds!

    Ahh Love it! We will totally try this puppet theatre idea, and I love the idea of an unplugged week… give me a week to motivate myself to unplug though! <3

      Haha! It’s definitely harder work for the mom then the kid to unplug!
