Shadow Animal Art

Have some fun using shadows to create some animal art! You will need some blank paper, pencils or felts or crayons, plastic animal toys, and a light source (e.g. sunshine or a lamp). 1. Put your favourite animal on the paper with the sun/light shining from behind creating a shadow on your paper. 2. Use a pencil to trace lightly around the shadow to create an outline of your animal. 3. Use your colours to colour in your animals and add any details like eyes or patterns. 4. Click add 5. Take a photo of your shadow art. 6. Use a label to tell me which animal you have drawn and anything interesting facts about that animal. 7. Click check to upload.
