Shadow Game

This morning as we were driving Princess S. to school, Wolfman was noticing all the really long shadows on the street. I decided to take advantage of the teaching opportunity...
at 8 am he was Wolfman, at 9 am he was Spiderman, at 10 am he was Superman, at 11 he was himself again, and by noon he was Batman - all with massive muscles.

VERY cool idea!! (and drawings!) And what impresses me the most is that you recognized a "teachable moment" that early in the morning!!! ;)

Seriously, can my kids have you as a mom. . . even for a day? They'd benefit so much and be so darn smart! I'm totally gonna have to do this! Kya's always commenting on the shadows she sees while driving, etc.
