Hand Shadows to Entertain Kids and Adults

Updated on September 18, 2013

Rabbit, Kangaroo, Cardinal, Bird, Goose, Turkey and Dog.  These are only few examples of the amazing things that you can do with your hands using the amazing hand shadow puppet art.

I've been always been amazed to people who have such an amazing talents.  People who can make you laugh if you are lonely, happy when you're sad and entertain when you got bored.  This people have definitely great and amazing talents.  They can make you laugh, cry even doing such a simple thing.  Natural talents which will definitely make you amazed.

Amazing Hand Shadow show by Raymond Crowe

When I first saw the video, it made me realized that its not impossible to do it because before I only was familiar about the bird hand shadow which is the most famous one.

I will definitely practice and learn these shadow art for someday I can be able to let my son/ daughter watch and be entertained by this simple heart touching talent.

If you want to learn these arts then I have some few things that I can give you.










Old Man

And lastly, the most common and very famous

Bird in Flight

Hope at the end of this clip you will be able to learn. Showcase your talent to your kids I know your kids will love this one because kids have amazing happiness.  They'll laugh and be happy in everything that will make them, small or big things.

      Wonderful! I spent many a time down in the celler durning bad storms as a child, where my mother entertained my brother and me with hand shadows. What memories this brings back. I can't wait to share this Hub with my 12 year old son, who also loves hand shadows. Thanks so much!

      Thanks. You're right Richie, before we can learn all of those we maybe have to practice and familiarize the figures everyday.
