This post is in partnership with Warner Bros. Pictures.
Warner Bros. Pictures asked us to make these LEGO Batman Shadow Puppets to celebrate The LEGO Batman Movie, coming to theaters THIS weekend. In the irreverent spirit of fun that made “The LEGO® Movie” a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.
LEGO Batman Shadow Puppets
This for sure is an easy mess free kids activity that will allow kids hours of fun playing LEGO Batman and Robin long after the movie is over. Kids will also be learning about light and shadow.
LEGO Batman Shadow Puppets Supplies
- wooden skewers
- free LEGO Batman Printable
Download printable. Print in black and white on card-stock. Cut out ant tape to a wooden skewer.
Hold the shadow puppets in bright light and see how they make a cool shadow on the wall. Move it around seeing how you can make the figures smaller and larger. Encourage children to make up a story while they play!
Be sure to head to theaters to hear Will Arnett reprise his starring role from “The LEGO Movie” as the voice of LEGO Batman, aka Bruce Wayne. Zach Galifianakis (“Muppets Most Wanted,” the “Hangover” films) stars as The Joker; Michael Cera (TV’s “Arrested Development”) as the orphan Dick Grayson; Rosario Dawson (TV’s “Daredevil”) as Barbara Gordon; and Ralph Fiennes (the “Harry Potter” films) as Alfred. Too fun!
Check out the trailer below and we’ll see you in theaters this weekend!
