2011 October 22 – Shadow Play

October 22, 2011

Shadow fun can be had in the sun or inside on the wall with flashlights.  Find objects and make different shadowy shapes, design shadow puppets and put on a show or measure your shadows and draw them on the driveway.  Shadow play can incorporate storytelling and science as even the youngest children can begin to notice the position of the earth and sun and the effect on their shadow.  Playing with shadows might make then less scary for those who tend to be afraid of dark and shadowy things.  Play a shadow guessing game!

But whatever you do, don’t overshadow my shadow!
