We're leading up to Groundhog Day and it's a great time 
to play with light and shadows.
 I took a few of our toy animals and made silhouettes on a transparency sheet.
Cut them out and placed both toy and silhouette on the light table.
Over the weekend I was browsing Pinterest and saw this 
Shadow Book and inspiration hit.
This morning I asked children to pose or caught them in
unique poses and made silhouettes of them.
I copied the original picture on transparency sheet too so they could match them.

We talked about how a shadow would lay if a light was shining on the person.
Wouldn't it be neat if there was a material to make the silhouettes that would stretch
like a shadow does, depending on where the sun is in the sky.
Hmmm, any ideas?
