One of the best scenes in Peter Pan is at the beginning when Peter is trying to catch his shadow. When he finally catches it, he tries to attach it with soap, but everyone knows you’re supposed to sew your shadow back on. Silly Peter!

I wanted to teach Chloe about shadows so we first watched the Peter Pan clip. Then I attached a shop light to a door. Chloe turned off the lights and I turned on the shop light. At first, she didn’t know what we were looking at and was more interested in the shop light. But then I showed her how her bunny has a shadow and she got it. This activity was for Chloe while Vincent was in school but I’m pretty sure Vincent would enjoy playing with shadows, too.
