What is as big as you are but weighs nothing at all? Your shadow! In this activity you will explore shadows. You will look at how shadows are made, and you will experiment with creating shadows. You can then create an artwork around the shadow of one of your favourite toys, and then spread a little sunshine by sharing your artwork with your friends and family.

Learning@Home resources are designed for parents and teachers to use with children in the home environment. They can be used as stand-alone activities or built into existing curriculum-aligned learning programs. Our Learning@Home series includes two types of resources.

These lessons support independent learning in remote or school settings.
