Toddler afraid of shadows

I just wanted to share with others the way my daughter and I got around her fear of shadows. The best thing we did was to make a game out of it. We tried making our own shadows and especially in the daylight when everything is less scary. This helped her to see that shadows were natural and nothing to be afraid of. We still make shadows together at bedtime with the light on and she enjoys it. And then, when I switch her light off, I don't shut her door or leave her room completely dark. This also helps.

my daughter is scared of the curtains when the wind blows them, maybe I'll try making up a game to help her with that. Good Idea.
