DIY Literacy Tool: Light Table (LIBRARY MAKE)

Sensory play, or letting your child explore the world with their five senses through play, is a great way to heighten their early learning efforts.  Encourage your child’s sensory play by using a light table!  A light table is simply a table or box with a large surface backed by light.   Your child will love tracing patterns and letters on your light table using beads, beans and more, which will aid in learning letters and improving dexterity.  You can even bring objects from nature, like leaves, indoors and examine them with a light table!

While they may look complicated, you can make your own light table with items you probably already have at home.  Watch the video below to learn how!  You can also read the instructions with these printable instruction sheets.
