This week, we are talking about shadows with it being Groundhog Day and all.
We started off with talking about our shadows, and since it was a nice and sunny (though cold) day, we went outside and watched our shadows. We ran and danced to see what our shadows would do. We also touched our shadows. It was fun to watch little 22 month old McKenna walk a while as she tried to catch up to it before finally just bending over and touching it.
Once we were done exploring our shadows, we were ready to try making shadow puppets. You can do this quite simply, but I found a fun website called Shadow-Puppets.com that has some fun ways to do different shadows. I am not all that creative with such things, so this was great.
