Groundhog Shadow Drawings

   Have your child create their own shadow this Groundhogs Day. This will teach them how shadows are made as well as create a fun activity for them to take part in

Supplies Needed:

#1: Make sure you are in a dark room. Tape a piece of white construction paper on the wall behind where your child would stand.
#2:  Have your child stand sideways (so you see their profile) in front of the lamp or flashlight until their reflection shows on the wall behind them. You may need to have them move so the image of their face  is small enough to fit on the white piece of construction paper
#3: Have your child stand still while you trace their face on the white sheet of construction paper
#4: Turn the lights back on and take the white sheet of paper off the wall and glue it to the back of the black sheet of construction paper
