dinosaur shadow drawing

This is not only a great mark making activity,
but a great way to talk about light/dark  -inside and outside!

It was a white fluffy could day, so the sun kept going in and out, which allowed us to talk about shadows and what was creating our shadows (in this case the sun). The kids had to work out where they needed to sit, so that they weren't blocking the light- it was cute to watch their confused little faces when the sun went behind the clouds and the dinosaurs shadow disappeared! 

This can be a great activity to do with flash-lights/touches on a rain day as well!
