I have been inspired by Play At Home Mom's awesome playroom and toys. Have you seen this blog? You have to check it out. The playroom is incredible and all the educational toys and storage solutions that are used make me want a designated playroom SO MUCH! To me, this is the dream playroom.
One of the items from the playroom that I really like is the light table. I put together this one:
It is really simple to make, all you need to do is put some white Christmas lights into a clear storage box. I also taped wax paper to the inside of the lid so it would diffuse the light. I thought that I would have to drill a hole in the plastic for the cord but my cord is thin enough that I don't need to and my box still latches closed. Your box may vary so you may need to drill a hole. Then all you need are some colorful opaque items and let your child play! I purchased these vase fillers at the dollar store. Just be sure to always supervise your little one so the items don't end up in their mouths!
The possibilities with this table are endless and I like the fact that it is low to the ground and can easily be stored under a bed. Next, I'm going to purchase some acrylic shapes for him to play with.
What would be your child's favorite thing to play with on a light table?
