On a sunny day, take your grandchild outside and show him his shadow. See if your child would like to make his shadow dance, jump, wave, crouch, run, and more. This is great practice for your grandchild’s listening skills and also gets him moving outside. For a final bit of fun, trace your grandchild’s shadow with chalk and together the two of you can color in his “shadow shape.”
