After seeing these all over the blogosphere and Pinterest, I decided it was time to make a light box for Boogie.
My inspiration came from these DIY light box posts.
The Activity Mom
Teach Preschool (post 1, post 2, post 3)
No Time For Flascards
* tupperware box
* aluminum foil
* wax paper
* lights (battery operated, flashlights, or Christmas lights if they don't contain lead. Ours did so we started over with battery operated lights and a flashlight.)
Decide whether you want the surface to be your lid or bottom. We used the bottom because there were fewer markings.
Line the surface with waxed paper inside.
Line all other sides (inside) with aluminum foil.
Put your lights in! Easy peasy! And we had all the supplies on hand!
So far, we have used take and toss containers...
And colored water with eyedroppers. To do the water activity, I put another clear storage container on top of the light box then used small glass bowls for each color.
Boogie is loving this!
