Shadows Book Basket

Friday, February 2, 2024

Happy Groundhog's Day! Let's be honest here, we talk about the groundhog, but the real star of the show is the shadow. So I put together a book basket all about shadows, just to celebrate! These books get into the myths, science, and fun of shadows. And I've included two books that directly tie into Groundhog's Day! Plus links to a bunch of fun shadow-related activities. If you'd like a PDF of the book list, plus a few extra goodies, scroll to the end of this post.



Once we figured out the best method, Ro had a lot of fun drawing shadows. You can find out more about this on the Emma Owl blog!

This Shadow Matching Activity from Hands On As We Grow is genius, and uses supplies you're sure to have around the house.

We made some very simple shadow puppets when we did our Flashlight Book Basket, and we had fun guessing what the shapes were when they were on our garage!

The great thing about having shadows as a theme is the activities are endless. Use your hands to make animal shadows. Play a shadow game where you are the shadow and have to copy what the other is doing. Set up a lamp and just have fun with shadows on the wall. And, best of all, if you get your books from the library this can be a free day full of fun!
