  • Make some spray out of an new/very clean empty spray bottle and some water and mabey a little vanilla or something else that is not toxic and smells good. Label it Shadow Spray. Have you little one spray all around the bed and bedroom. Shadows dont really like shadow spray :). Also.......lay where his bed is. Is he seeing shadows from windows etc?

  • There are lots of shadow experiments online that help explain them to kids,show him it's just about light & they're not going to hurt him
