I have been saving this activity for the letter L week and it is finally here. I was super excited and I hoped that both Hannah and Ethan would enjoy. This activity has popped up all over thee mom blog scene, so where I saw it first is uncertain but I am pretty sure that it was at Play at Home Mom.
My first problem to work out before we could even do this activity was how to rig up a light box/table. Here is how I did it:
|First, I took a picture frame (bigger than the container you will use underneath it. |
Removed everything from the back except the glass.
Then tape a piece of wax paper onto the inside of the frame to make to the light more opaque.
|Then I turned it on, added some colorful gem stones, and a container with more.|
|I took this picture with the flash on by mistake, but it such a lovely picture of the two of them playing side by side.|
|Ethan "choosing" his gems.|
|I gave Hannah a marker later on and she drew on the glass.|
I have some more things I like to try on the light box. So stay tuned.
