I was struck by something so totally random tonight that I decided to include it in the blog. As I was tucking the kids into bed and starting their light machine, I realized it had turned so instead of projecting the image on the ceiling it was on the wall. The kids thought it was really cool and started pointing out all the sea creatures like octopus, starfish, crab, etc. As they moved in front of the machine, they each cast a shadow on the wall. They soon took notice of it and started making deliberate movements so they could see how it affected their shadow. We spent 10 minutes talking about shadows and doing all sorts of things. It was just so neat to see the kids learning a new concept that most adults take for granted. Their little minds were processing a new idea they had never thought of before. Very cool. And random.
