This month’s Kiwi Crate was so much fun! Zoey and I played and giggled over this crate, and I was once again very impressed with the thought that went into the project. At the end of this post, I will have information for a special Black Friday Deal going on through November 30, so be sure to check it out!
The theme for November’s crate was shadow and light. The first thing we did was put together a mini projection box to attach to the flash light that came with the crate. Batteries included! 🙂 We spent the first evening playing with projections, creating our own designs on the transparent sheets provided, as well as playing with the pre-cut shadow pieces. The kit came with blue, green, and red sheets that we were able to layer with the shadow cutouts and project colors onto the wall. It also came with several clear sheets so we could design our own with dry erase markers (provided). I wish I could have gotten good pictures of the projections, but they just weren’t turning out well. Boo!
Later in the week we put together the shadow puppets. The kit came with everything we needed to create six shadow puppets: a shark, a fish, a cloud with weather transparencies, a snail, a caterpillar, and a body of water with a boat transparency. The boat included a string so we could pull it up and down and make it appear as if the boat was moving through the water. Zoey and I had fun playing with the shadow puppets, and she learned that if you are closer to the light, then the shadow is bigger. If you are closer to the wall, then the shadow is smaller. Imagine the fun she had with the shark when she realized this! The shark “ate” the boat many times. 😉 We played and giggled for a good while with this one!
While October’s crate was a lot easier and simple to complete, I was glad that November’s was more complex and took longer. We had a lot of fun playing with this one, and it taught Zoey a lot about depth, and the relationship between light and shadows. SO much fun!
