We are having beautiful weather at the moment and it’s a great opportunity to play with shadows. Have a go at drawing the shadows that you find or that you create by placing a piece of paper underneath the shadow and drawing around the outsides to make a silhouette. Try doing a shadow of a branch with leaves or the shadow of a favourite toy. Once you’ve made your shape you could colour them in.
How creative can you be with your shadow drawings?
Use different colours to create your shadow drawing, use mark making techniques.
Ask people in your bubble to guess what your shadow drawing is of – a tea pot, a plant, a dinosaur?
