Make sure your spouse is playing the same game too so that you would not scare your child too much B) In the bedroom - Hide under the blanket with your child with a torchlight - Shine at the things in your bedroom with a torchlight - Make different kinds of shapes and shadows on the wall with your hands C) In the day - Point out your child's shadows to him or her - Allow your child to explore freely what he or she can do to form shadows on the ground (such as holding on to different objects or using different body movements) - Use a magnifying glass to show how shadows can be casted when light passes through the magnifying glass
