22 Month old- Fear of Shadows

Wanted some advice or tips on helping an almost 2 year old overcome a fear of shadows. This started a few months ago when she noticed her shadow in the garden in the summer but she seemed to have forgotten about it.

However today she became inconsolable when seeing her shadow in the evening in the kitchen. Despite waving at our shadows and making shapes and generally trying to reassure her, she continued to be clingy and would just scream everytime she would see her own shadow.

Has anyone got any experience with this or advice as to how to overcome this fear?
