Did you know that the first shadow performances originated in China 2000 years ago? Which stories did they tell? Now we can make our own shadow theatre at home, invite guests and create our own fairy tales.
By playing with shadows your child will begin to understand cause and effect, as they explore and observe what makes a shadow and where the light needs to be to cast a shadow. They will be experimenting with size and shapes as they move the shadows around.
They will also be learning new words relating to shadows.
Plenty of practice with experimenting and exploring helps children to learn about the way the physical world works. Observation skills will help them to notice differences and make changes, like when they move a puppet closer to the light source.
