Hey all you Spring Breakers. Looking for some rainy day fun? Have I got an Olive Us episode for you! It’s called Shadow Puppets, and yep, it’s exactly what the name implies — lots of fun shadow puppets for you and your kids to try. And I’m betting that after they watch it, that’s exactly what they’ll want to do.
In fact, Ben Blair sent out the Olive Us Newsletter last week (you can subscribe here), and in it he shared this episode. Then all weekend long, we saw tweets and instagrams and emails of Olive Us viewers who were trying their own shadow puppets too! Really, really fun. Made us all grin like crazy.
I hope you enjoy the episode. And if you’re having trouble viewing it here, try it on Vimeo.
P.S. — Happy April Fool’s Day! In France, it’s Poisson d’Avril — children stick paper fishes on their friends’ backs today. Hah!

I can’t get enough of your “Olive Us” videos. Simply in love with them.
I love June’s wide-eyed look as she watches her siblings make shadow puppets – absolutely adorable.
Same here! Watching her reactions is wonderful.
This is so completely delightful! What a treasure for you to have when they are all big….sniff.
June’s face and expressions are beyond adorable!
How cool! I love it.
My 3 year old daughter has been afraid to sleep at night because of shadow monsters. We’ve been watching this video before bed and afraid no more. Love the Olive us videos, sweet family .
Oh hooray! I’m so glad the video has been helpful to your daughter. Sweet dreams to your whole family!
My boys loved this episode! They were shouting out the animals before they were revealed. I like the illustrations, did you do them?
The illustrations are by Merrilee Liddiard. And she did the title typography as well. She’s amazing!
these videos are wonderful! i can imagine the blair kids when they are all grown up rewatching them…
I really loved this. Beautifully done.
