|We love our dumpy little shadows. They were shorter than our real selves.|
|My youngest modeling her pink airplane, with head.|
Then we had a great idea. What if we came back later in the day, how would our shadows change? Well around dinner time our shadows were now long and lean!
Very long and lean. (A big thanks to our neighbor girl Elisa for assisting in the tracing action) She noticed before she could draw them while sitting in one place. Now she had to scoot along the ground to finish.
Not only were they long and lean, but they were turned 90º. How sciency! Even our heads were tall and skinny. They thought that was hilarious. Elisa was the tallest of all. She went all the way across the road.
Here is little us sitting next to really tall us. They also got a big kick out of the occasional car that passed by. "They just ran over my face!" says my littlest.
And, be it noted: If you have a giant 6 foot shadow of yourself on the ground, you are obligated to decorate it.
|My oldest thought her person needed a white dress with matching gloves and shoes|
Our finished really really tall selves.
I guess we can "chalk" this up to another fun afternoon of learning and playing...
