We started our light exploration journey a few months ago with a homemade light table made from an old plastic drawer and Christmas lights.
Then a problem crept up on us. I noticed the kids would wait to play with all our glowing goodies until after the sun went down. Naturally it was more fun in the dark. But with the days getting longer outside, the light table started gathering dust.
* Water beads are found on the floral aisle at Walmart for a couple bucks and are great for sensory play. They literally glow on the light table.
* X-rays can often be obtained for free from doctors and veterinarians and offer a wide range of learning opportunities.
Hopefully this has shed some light on the possibilities of making a light room in your own house. Try it. It’s glowing good fun!
