{Play} Bathtime Shadow Puppet Show

March 11, 2012 in All Posts, Play, Toddler Activities

The kids are crazy about their shadows and love locking themselves in a room, turning off the lights, and playing with flashlights to make shadows.  To up the ante on the fun factor, we’ve taken this activity to the bath.


  • A flashlight
  • Something to rest the flashlight on

Step One

Turn off the lights and run the bath.  Just this step and the kids will be shrieking with laughter and ooh’s and aah’s.

Step Two

Rest your flashlight on something at the children’s height.  We simply rested the flashlight on the toilet tank.

Step Three

Put on a shadow puppet show!
