Shadow Guessing Game (or Basic Table Setting Placemat)

With our focus on the sun last week, I thought we'd look at shadows this week.  This is an easy shadow guessing game to make. 

You need:
Construction paper
Household objects (like a key, fork, spoon, pencil, tape dispenser, etc.)

1)  Take the construction paper outside on a sunny day.  Place the objects on the paper and leave them for a few hours.

2)  Take off the objects, give them to your child, and see if they can match the shadow with the object!

Another idea is to make a placemat.  I have been teaching the girls how to set the table.  I thought this would make a great placemat to show them a basic plate setting.  I'm going to laminate mine for durability!
