Shadow Tracing

Is your child always curious about the dark figure that follows him/her anywhere he/she goes? Try this activity with your child to capture that dark figure a.k.a shadow! Make sure to do it on a sunny day though.

You will need:

–          Lots of sunlight

–          Sideway chalk

How to do it:

1. Find a good spot with lots of space to draw your shadow. You don’t necessarily have to draw a human. You can draw a shadow of a tree, a house or anything!
