Shadow Play

Head outside on a sunny day and play with your own shadows. Stand beside each other and “touch” hands in shadow. Or, stand behind your child so you create one shadow, and wave your hands to the side so it looks like you’re one body with four hands. Observe shadows of trees, street sights, cars, etc.
