Fascinated is an understatement! This kid was like a little kitten playing with the moving light- giggling, yelling, and trying so hard to catch the moving target! I had a larger flashlight for me and a small plastic light that was easy for him to handle. I set up some shatter proof mirrors and let him explore the light, shadows and reflections. I hid the small flashlight under a small sheep skin and watched him "paw" at it as I moved it around! What makes dark? What makes light? Look at that shadow! Why can't I grab it? These simple activities are stepping stones for helping Parker understand the world around him! Physics for a 7 month old!!!
