Last year The Story Museum created giant silhouette story characters with local young people to display in their beautiful courtyard.  Why not have a go at creating your own to display in your window at home for the Christmas Light Festival.


Explore a story and then follow the tutorial and create your own beautiful silhouette character to display in your window at home.   


You will need white or black paper, pencil, black marker pen and scissors to complete this activity.


Suitable for age 8+. Children will need adult supervision for this activity.


Register your street on the light trail map here (register button) so that your neighbours can meander through the streets and enjoy your art! There will be a prize for the best photo of an illuminated window!
