Makes My Monday: Me and My Shadows

Shadow puppets, that is.

Once again, the simplest of activities proved the hit of the weekend. Given a book of directives on how to create puppets using your hands only
or by creating puppets using perforated punch-outs and popsicle sticks,

... the productions were a high point of the weekend. 100% worth sacrificing the already narrow walkway into our living room for two days.

What makes you smile for the camera this Monday? Do tell--and share in the web-wide week's beginning brightening. Don't forget to leave comments on other participants' posts...comments are Monday Makers!

Was there background music?
I'm feeling some classical music in the background.
Maybe a little "Peter and the Wolf" action.
