Shadow Hands and Wiggling Bottoms

  More fun with shadows! What do you think we are making? We tried birds, butterflies, ducks, frogs on logs, geese...


We weren't too keen to get too close just in case ...

Here we are at the stadium in Iringa celebrating 50 years of independence for Tanzania! There were lots of people and parades and dances where they wiggle their bottoms! There were lots of stalls, and at one we found a real monkey and a scary looking lion which was just skin. 

See if you can do the dance at home, just ask someone to bang a drum for you. Louisa is pretty good!


  1. I like your shadow puppets. When we go to our little summer cottage where there is no electricity, our grandchildren, ages 5 to 12 like to try to make new and different shapes. I'm going to show them yours! I love to read your posts. I like to read about your adventures in Tanzania.

  2. I had a shadow once, but now it's November it seems to have disappeared. Maybe it was looking for somewhere warm to live, like Africa where they seem to thrive.

  3. I'll ask Shirley to do the dance while I bang the drum. Love to hear your news girls xxx
