toy shadow tracing

Tracing and coloring skills get a workout with this indoor or outdoor DIY. Dinosaur figures make colossally cool shadows, but you can use favorite characters, dolls, you name it! If you’re playin’ outdoors, let ol’ Mr. Sun shine down to create shadows. For indoor play, just shine a flashlight and trace away!

What You’ll Need:
crayons or markers
flashlight or sunlight

Let your toys stand their ground anywhere they want, as long as they cast a shadow onto the paper.

Trace the outline of the shadow for each toy.

Add some color and you can even add your own background to really create a scene!

watch how it's done!
