Torch Shadow Box

This was a fun one. The last couple of days, I have enjoyed sitting down at 3:30pm to watch Mister Maker on ABC 4 Kids. Mister Maker has fantastic crafty ideas, and today, I just had to try one of them out. We changed it up a bit but it's basically the same idea.

To make your own, you'll need a disposable container with a transparent lid, star stickers (you could use any shape really) and a torch. We began by cutting a hole in the bottom of the container and threading the handle of the torch through the hole. To finish we decorated the lid with star stickers and placed back on the container enclosing the torch inside. The best part is that we can make more lids with different shapes and keep them to play with another time.

It has just occurred to me that you could stick your shapes directly onto the torch if you wanted to. This would never fly at our house. Priya's dad is very protective of his torch.

Now for the exciting part! We closed the blinds and the door to darken the room. On went the torch and there they were - star shadows!
