This activity was first done as part of our light study initiated by the Baraboo Light Parade. We did a variety of light explorations, but this was one of the most simple and fun activities we did.
Cut out some circles with Construction Paper
Tape them around your classroom or home at varying heights and spaces.
Consider positional words when placing (up, down, under, above, etc)
Gather Flashlights - one for each child
Invite your child to go on a Circle Hunt with you. Give each child a flashlight and ask if they can shine their light on a circle. You may have to model this the first couple of times. Use language to describe where they find the circles and/or what color circle. For example, "you found a blue one above your head" or "that circle is next to the light switch" Soon you will have kids animated and running all over crying out "I found a circle!"
Flashlights (one per child)
- Make it a shape hunt
- Count how many you can find
- Have a checklist and try to find one of each color or shape
