Guest Post: Make a Shadow Puppet with @FromWineToWhine

Last month, much to my displeasure,Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow and predicted (correctly) six more weeks of winter. The snow has been a bit of a drag but playing with shadows has been a ball. Today I am pleased to share a fun shadow puppet from blogger Deanne who writes the blog From Whine to Wine.

Her DIY Shadow puppets were inspired after seeing a similar craft at Anthropoligie. Click heret…
