Kids Light Box Color & Light Play
After seeing so many other moms sharing awesome kids light box and light table activities, I FINALLY made a simple light box for the kids. I just threw a couple battery operated LED lights into a clear bin to make the box. And the kids built a tent with blankets in the living room to make a nice dark spot to play with it in.
Colorful Cups on the Kids Light Box
I wasn’t quite as ambitious as Dyan was when she made her shape and letter manipulatives for her kids light box. I just gave the kids a bunch of colorful translucent plastic cups (and shot glasses – HA!) that I purchased at 5 Below.
The kids oooohed and aaaahed over the glowing light. They nested different colored cups to see what colors they would make. They concentrated as they built colorful cup pyramids. And they giggled when they came tumbling down. It kept them entertained for nearly an hour and I can assure you lots of learning took place, too.
When J.C. woke up from his nap, he even had a go with the lights and cups right in his high chair. Now they’ve got the light box bug and I’m going to have to come up with some more light box ideas.
