How to Shadow Dance with Pizzaz

Are you looking for a pick-me-up for the shortest days, the earliest nights, the restlessness of winter? Look no further. Shadow dancing can bring some giggles and some creative movement into your family's life.

And with a little tweak, it can have the pizzaz inspired by MisterWives in their Video for Superbloom.

Purchase three spotlights and colored gels

(Notes: I use these from Target but you might like these spotlights, which look good for using binder clips for attaching the gels, or a lamp with three lights.)

Fun, right?!

It is easy and inexpensive to do at home! And it is the perfect thing to have in your back pocket to celebrate the change of seasons, as a pick-me-up on a rainy or snowy day, or as a special surprise for a family-friendly New Years party! 

Have fun!!! 

Note: I didn't have problems with the gels getting hot. It is what they are designed to do. However, you are responsible for keeping your family safe.




No one should stress over worksheets so I wrote the guide for learning math from everyday life...because when the world is your classroom you are free to learn math that matters.
