Let shadows be your child’s guide for this activity. In the morning (8 a.m.) or late afternoon (4 p.m.), place a table in a sunny spot where long shadows will be cast. Unroll paper (Easel Paper Roll, $14; alexbrands.com) along one side of the table, and arrange a variety of objects along the paper’s edge. Have your child trace the shadows with markers.
Past • Present • Future Art inspiration for the GCSE exam topic, using lollipop sticks to represent something eaten in the past (recycling, rubbish) and then creating a painting or illustration that could relate to the other topics as well. Photo credit to @colours_to_inspire on Instagram
