Halloween Shadow Puppets


We’re celebrating all things spooky this week at Moonfrye! My girls are having a blast putting on spooky shows with our awesome Halloween shadow puppets. Use our downloadable template to make your own! We used Halloween-colored paper drinking straws for our shadow puppets, but craft sticks or even twigs from your own backyard also work great.


What you will need:

Paper drinking straws in Halloween colors

Black card stock

Spooky Halloween Shadow Puppet template (click here to download!)


Exacto knife (adults only, please!)



Step 1: Print out the shadow puppet template onto the black cardstock.

Step 2: Cut out the outline of the shapes with scissors, using an Exacto knife for smaller details on the inside.



Step 3: Attach each puppet to a drinking straw with glue and allow to dry.


Step 4: Use your puppets to create a spooky Halloween show!
