Silhouettes are the outlines of objects and people, and a hundred years ago, before cameras and photos were popular, women used to wear the silhouettes of loved ones on cameo brooches and pins. Here's an activity that allows you to recreate this art. While these silhouettes are much larger, they're still sweet reminders of loved ones and a good time gone by. And all it takes is a flashlight, paper, and some markers!
What You Need:
- Large roll of white paper
- At least 3 people – the child who will appear in silhouette, plus you and one other person
- Crayons and markers
