Tot School-- Lighting it Up!


Have you seen these light tables posted around on some blogs?  Well I am in looooooove with them.  Adeline is very visually stimulated, she is always staring at the chandlers in our house, so when I saw these I knew that Adeline must have one. 

Well, I could make one. I found some good ideas on line such as this on:  http://www.teachpreschool.org/2011/06/diy-light-table-for-preschool/

I could buy one, but most of them are made for artists or photography and not sure how it would handle getting dropped to the floor.  So I borrowed this one from a friend to see what Adeline thought of it before I put a lot of time and effort into it.  Well, she looooooved it.  It held her attention for such a long time.  She sat and played with letters for much longer than she would of she just had the letters on a tray or the floor.   I have seen some great ideas that other moms are doing I think I am convinced to try and make one. 

 Looking at shapes.

Has any one made a light table and had good success?  Please let me know.


  1. We don't have one (yet) but ever since reading about them on Pudge & Biggs's website, I so want one. I think Miss K would really like one.

  2. What a great idea! I'm going to try this with my 4 year old. I'm sure Ben will enjoy it too!
