Regardless of whether the ground hog sees his shadow or not on February 2, kids can create their own Shadow Shapes—and make them all year 'round.
With a partner, find a dark room with one source of light that casts shadows on the floor. Or ask a third person to hold a flashlight.
Practice forming shapes of animals and other images with one or both of your hands. Place black construction paper on the floor. While you form and hold your Shadow Shapes, your partner traces them onto the paper with a Crayola® Construction Paper Crayon. What do you think the shadow of a groundhog like Punxsutawney Phil looks like?
Switch places with your partner so you both have turns. Make several different kinds of shapes!
Color your shapes and add outlines and features with crayons.
If you are 4 or older, cut out your shapes with Crayola Scissors. Adults help younger children with cutting for safety.
Glue shapes onto white construction paper with a Crayola Glue Stick.
