20+ Ways to Play and Learn with Shadows Science Projects

Akanksha (19 months) loves to play with his shadow. It’s her latest obsession. She will chase it across the lawn or along the wall and walk slowly backwards and spin in circles, trying to figure out how that patch of darkness keeps following her. It’s highly entertaining – who needs TV?  Are you ready to watch some super cuteness (Ok, I may be biased…)? Here’s a little Pyjama clad Akanksha chasing her shadow before bed time.
