Using a wall, ceiling, or piece of white cardstock as a screen, hands can be moved in front of the light to make shadow animals and creatures.
Children experiment as they discover how to make their shadows get bigger, smaller, and dance in front of the light.
Shapes cut from cardboard or heavy paper can be used as characters and props to act out Halloween stories and poems.
Children enjoy trying special effects created by placing colored plastic in front of the lens. With more than one flashlight, colored shadows add another dimension of fun and science observation.
