Once Cakes was standing still long enough I traced around her shadow. She thought it was brilliant that she could see the outline once she moved away. It then was my turn. With Cakes casting her own shadow on my shadow she became a little frustrated though in the end she was very happy with the outline she had created of me.
We both laid down in the outline to see if the shadow was a good representation of both of us. Cakes said "it little bit okay, but you too big for shadows". Good to know my shadow was a little smaller. We discussed the movement of the sun and how as it moved our shadows would grow and shrink and be cast in different directions. We used meal times as the time keepers so straight after lunch she wanted to see if the shadow had changed direction, it hadn't though our shadows became much much smaller. Again later in the day we made our way back out and the shadows had change direction. Often now she asks which way the shadow will face before we get outside and is pleasantly surprised every time.
