Shadow Stomp

Sometimes shadows are quite frightening for little ones. Using a simple story like Moonbear's Shadow by Frank Asch can help tame this fear. Another story with a good introduction to shadows followed by a photo guessing game is Guess Whose Shadow by Stephen Swinburne.

Moonbear's Shadow

Guess Whose Shadow?

I have also found it helpful to take my fearful child outside on a sunny day and go on a shadow hunt.  Another non-threatening way to explore shadows is to play Shadow Stomp.

To play Shadow Stomp, you need:
Shadows  :)

1)  Run around and try to "stomp" on each other's shadow!  A variation would be to stomp on an object's shadow (trees, bikes, flowers, etc.)

Thank you for stopping by my blog.

Your book recommendations sound like stories my children would enjoy. We have fun with shadow stomp here too.
