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.

If you liked this activity, please check out my book, Chalk on the Wild Side.
