So, here’s DAY 5, the final day of the Shadow Play series of posts. I hope you’ve enjoyed them as much as I have creating them! Since I’ve been posting about our shadow play this week, I also wanted to include some other great posts on shadows and shadow play. So, here’s a round-up of some of my favorites:
And … how about one more from me … simply taking pictures or video taping your children’s shadows on a blank wall can also be a really fun playful activity. You can really get some really cool shots this way! I have an excellent video that I made of Henry’s shadow dancing a couple years ago … I converted it to black and white and put it to music.
[important play therapist note: many of these shadow activities could be great starting points to discuss and play out MANY therapeutic issues ... fears, "shadows of our past", etc.]
Do you have any shadow games, crafts, books, or activities for kids? I’d LOVE to hear about them!
