This is a wonderfully easy activity to set up and kids absolutely love it!
The first bit of sunshine that comes your way is the perfect time to get busy with animal shadow drawing!
You could, of course, use a light or lamp, but nothing beats the outdoor feeling of sunshine on your back when you draw your animals!
Choose animals that are a little bigger – or taller – they have the best effect!
You could also theme it – safari animals or dinosaurs if you choose.
What do you need to make animal shadow drawings?
- Paper/cardstock or a long paper roll
- Plastic animals/dinosaurs
- Pencils or markers
- I’ve created an easy Amazon shopping list below:
And that ladies and gentlemen is really all there is to it!
Find some sunshine and get drawing! We would love to see your animal shadow drawings!! You are welcome to pop them onto our Facebook wall when you are done!
If you would like to add a background we created this African sunset!
