Chalk Shadows


My kids have been interested in shadows lately and by that I mean that I've been hearing a lot of, "Mo-om, she's stepping on my shadow! Will you tell her to stop???"


Since it was so sunny today and we needed a distraction, we did a quick and fun chalk shadow activity. We posed in the sun.


and traced each other's shadows.


Then we decorated them.

A fun book to go along with this activity is Shadow. In this nearly wordless book, a girl creates a magical world by casting shadows from the light bulb in a storage room.
