Shadow Play: Day 3, What’s that Shadow? game

Another fun game we’ve been playing lately is a guessing game with photographs of interesting shadows. I take the pictures and have the kids guess what the shadow is of.  Henry, my 5 year old, really enjoys this game.

Here are some of the photos (hover over the pic to see what it is … after you take a guess, of course!!) …


The photos taken during our Shadow Hunts are also great for this type of activity … especially since my 2 yr old loves the Shadow Hunt, but my 5 yr old loves the “What’s that Shadow?” … so the shadows are new for him!

    Thank you for sharing this with the Kids Co-op linky. My girls are both fascinating with shadows and love to make puppets to cast shadows on the wall.
