Playing with Shadows

In the story of Peter Pan, Peter loses his shadow and Wendy has to sew it back on to his body in order that he may never lose it again. Today, our elders had the opportunity to make shadows of themselves. We darkened the room and pointed a flashlight at a piece of paper. As they sat in between the light and the paper, we were able to trace their shadows. We then cut out dark replicas of their shadows and glued them to pieces of white paper. The needle and thread that we placed in the finished work of art symbolizes Wendy sewing on Peter’s shadow.
