When the sun isn’t bright outdoors, you can still explore shadows inside with a make-shift shadow theater. I’m sure you did this when you were a kid, right?!!
Shadow Theme: Shadow Theater
- Two chairs
- White sheet
- Household objects
1) Set two chairs a few feet apart. Drape with a white sheet. Set up a lamp behind the sheet.
2) Let the children explore shadows using their hands, arms, and legs.
3) Play a shadow guessing game. I had each girl pick a few items from her room, sit on the chair, and hold an item in front of the lamp. The rest of us sat on the other side and guessed what she was holding up!
I left it set up for a little while so they could experiment!
