Shadow Picture
By Marcy Reynolds

As we approach the summer solstice, daylight is shining longer each day, giving us lots of chances to play in the sun. One activity I enjoy on a sunny afternoon is making a shadow picture outside. All you need is pencil or pen and a piece of paper.

  • Take a walk at the Garden or in your neighborhood
  • Find a shadow you like.
  • Put a piece of paper on the sidewalk
  • Draw a line along the outline of the shadow
  • Observe the plant and color in the shadow picture you drew
  • Share your art with us!  Email us.
