Shadow Cards

Shadow Cards

This activity is for those of you who are living somewhere where it is sunny!

Colored construction paper
Small objects (e.g. shells, pine cones, pebbles, flowers, leaves, small branches or other items)
Bright Sunshine

Collect the objects by going on a walk
Choose some of the objects and arrange them on the colored construction paper.
Arrange the objects in different patterns or groups.
Overlap some of the objects.
Add writing or drawing to the finished design.
Create shadow cards by folding the paper into card shapes.

Leave the paper and its objects in the bright sunshine for several hours.
Later, remove the items and you should be able to see shadows of the objects.
