Hey there, fellow parents!
Anna, the creator of Papaton Shadow Theater playsets, is sharing her story of turning her son's bedtime struggles into fun and magical moments.
"As a mom of two, I totally get it – bedtime routines can be a real challenge for parents. But guess what? I've found an amazing solution that can turn those struggles into pure magic!
It all started when my younger child was having a tough time settling down. So I decided to change things up and turn our regular bedtime reading into something special. I told him that we were going to create magic before bed, and you won't believe the reaction I got! He was so intrigued that he agreed to go to bed even earlier than usual (yay!).
I grabbed our Papaton Shadow Theater playset, which we had just put together. I randomly picked some characters, turned on the music in our free Papaton Shadow Theater app, and dimmed the lights. With the phone on their chest, directing the light on the ceiling, we began to weave our story. Both kids were absolutely amazed, and started helping me create the tales! It was a huge success and quickly became our favorite bedtime tradition, especially when they wanted something new and exciting for their nightly routine.
And now, I'm excited to share this joy with you and your family. I'm thrilled to offer you a FREE Bedtime Shadow Stories Template complete with puppets and story starters. I've carefully designed it to bring joy to your little ones at bedtime, transporting them to a world of enchantment where stories come alive.
Here's what you'll need:
- Download our free shadow puppet template with various unique animals designed specifically for your bedtime stories.
- Use a flashlight or your phone for illumination.
- Download our free Papaton Shadow Theater app for charming music.
- Supplies: printing paper (your kids can color the characters if they want), a glue stick, scissors, and a printer. You don't need paper straws or wooden sticks—simply fold the end of the puppet and slide it onto your finger or hold it in your hands.
- Inspire your little ones to unleash their wild imagination and join you in creating their own stories together. Or use the bedtime story starters that we have prepared for you in the template.
- Turn off the lights and let the show begin!
