Shadow Dancing


With late autumn sunshine pouring in through our windows, we were inspired to take our dancing up a notch!

Depending on the direction your windows face, play this game when shadows are best projected against the wall. If it’s a rainy day (or nighttime!) you can continue the fun by putting out all the lights in the room except one, and then angling one light to hit a wall.


Have fun dancing up a storm, bonus points for songs that involve hand motions and gestures.


Travis loves Shake Those ‘Simmons Down from Music Together, and it was an absolute delight to dance with our shadow partners.


To continue the fun, I showed him how to make a few hand shadow animals, such as birds…


…And ducks.


Bonus points: our cat loved watching the action!
