It’s always fun to get into the spirit of Ground Hog’s Day and wait to see whether Phil will see his shadow. Why wait? Get in on the fun by making shadows of your own. All you need is a blank wall, a dark room and a flashlight. Take turns making shadow creatures. Have a shadow puppet show, or make some old-fashioned silhouettes by tracing facial shadow profiles onto clean, white paper. Cut out carefully, then transfer them to a sheet of black construction paper, trace, and cut out the dark image. You can mount this to white paper and hang up a gallery of family silhouettes.
Enjoy some shadow fun…even if there may be six more weeks of winter!
