{Outdoor Play Party: Shadow Play}

We've been playing with shadows outside this week!

We've taken advantage of some sunny autumn days to play, wave, walk in silly ways, and learn about what shadows are. Sweet Pea is quite fascinated and loves to wave to her shadow. And in the dark, we've been watching our shadows grow and shrink as we pass the streetlights. Princess Pea has been into measuring lately and is carrying a measuring tape around with her to and from school, so I think next time we might try measuring our shadows as we go.

Did you have a chance to check out all the ideas shared at last week's Outdoor Play Party? I especially liked this children's Gardening Club shared by Cathy at Nurturestore!
