So I bet you’re expecting a slew of shadow puppets and Halloween fun from this post, right? You won’t be disappointed – there’s TONS. That is, afterall, what sparked the idea for today’s collection.
But in tracking down lots of interesting shadow activities, I found a surprising number of ideas that don’t involve puppets or jack-o-lanterns. In fact, I’ve found activities for every occasion – indoors, outdoors, daytime, nighttime, sun, or rain. I’m sharing my favorite first (to ensure that your curiosity is peaked) and the rest will be peppered in with all the silly scary fun you’re expecting.
First up is this rad shadow book. Every little kid adopts his shadow as his best friend for a time – how great would it be for your little one to have a whole book about his new pal?

Shadows are nothing if not spooky. I love that these simple shadow makers from MiniEco allow even little kids to get in on the fun without being too frightful.
