Discovering shadows

My clever boy has just discovered his Dad's new phone, and that you can use it as a torch. Imainge his surprise and delight when he realised that not only did it shine a light, but that he could create indoor shadows using it!

At first he had to play around a bit- he kept turning around to show us and the shadow would dissapear, but eventually he realised that by shining the light towards the wall it would throw the shadow and we could see it.

His next discovery was that as he moved his hand away from the wall the shadow grew! He spent a fair bit of time explaining to me that this was called his 'Monster Arm' and chasing me with it. I can't wait for him to see what kinds of shapes you can make...
