We created these shadow drawings over the summer holidays, but they work brilliantly at any time of year as long as the sun is shining.
You can either look for shadows that have formed naturally to turn into a picture or make your own shadows and add to them.
Chalk or chalk pens work really well on hard surfaces.
We made steps with toy bricks and added stick people to them.
This image was created using a shadow formed by a washing line.
