Pentecost Shadow Puppet Drama

Check out this clever video from Dan Stevers on YouTube which depicts the story of Pentecost using Shadow puppets. I like the way the light and fire is included.  Use this to inspire your own shadow puppet recreation of the story.

Here are two ideas to create that Pentecost "flame effect" without lighting something on fire!

1. Position a small flash light behind your hand and point it at the screen so that your hand looks like it is holding the ball of light.

2. Tape strips of tissue paper to a glove or to your stick puppets and then position a fan below it and blowing upward  to create a flame-effect.

Luanne adds a third idea:

3. I purchased two of these orange lights, made by Gemmy called "Fire & Ice Projection Lightshow" or "Lightshow Fire and Ice Spotlight," for our Fiery Furnace Storytelling with the thought they'd also be great for Pentecost. Works great in a dark room on a white ceiling, creates flickering dancing flames.
