Craft: Create a mini theater using a shoebox with one end cut out as the screen. Draw characters on paper and attach them to popsicle sticks.
Experiment: Use a flashlight as your projector. Shine it through the characters onto the screen and move the sticks to tell a story. Just like Edison's early movies!
