You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to make an inexpensive DIY light table.

Light tables like this are great for preschoolers, as they inspire them with sorting and designing compositions.¬†Light Tables are wonderful for exploring the play of light, shadow, color, and transparency. Their unique nature can add a magical element to child’s play and encourage¬†curiosity, exploration, and problem-solving.

If you’ve been following my blog, you may remember the¬†overhead projector¬†that we salvaged for just $5 from Stanford’s Re-Use Department or the¬†DIY Light Table¬†that we filled with salt and¬†water beads.

I wanted to include a light box tutorial in my forthcoming book and recognized that our light box wouldn’t be easy for other parents or caregivers to replicate, so I started tinkering. Once I wrapped my head around this project, it couldn’t have been simpler.

Like painfully simple! Wait ’til you see.

If you don’t already have one of these, you’ll wonder why not.

  • Under-the-bed style clear storage box.¬†This¬†Rubbermaid Storage Box¬†(affiliate) is fantastic and this one with a snap top lid also looks great. I’ve also spotted really nice boxes at IKEA, which may be worth hunting down.
  • White Tissue Paper (the kind you wrap gifts with), wax paper, or tracing paper. My preference is white tissue paper. Stay clear of parchment paper as it’s impossible to tape it to anything.
  • Clear Tape
  • String of holiday lights
  • Extension cord: optional

Directions

  1. Tissue Paper:¬†Line the inside of the lid with tissue paper and tape it in place. Use clear tape so that the tape doesn’t show.¬†
  2. Holiday Lights:¬†Spread a string of holiday lights around the inside of your box. The cord will dangle out. We were able to close our box on the cord, but this isn’t necessary.
  3. Play! Place a few bowls of transparent manipulative materials near the light box and invite your child to create.
  4. Seed the project:¬†My kids are most responsive to this invitation if I seed the table with a few ideas. I set all of the materials out as you see in the photo above. My 2-year old saw this and added a red circle in the middle of one of the “flowers.” Then she decided to build a whole series of flowers with my assistance (below).

Store-bought Light Box Options

If making your own light box doesn’t appeal to you, there’s an enormous selection of store-bought options to choose from. We also have a¬†sweet little 5″ x 7″ Gagne Light Panel that I found at a local art store. Dbmier makes a similar tracing pad¬†that’s recommended for stenciling, 2D Animation, Calligraphy, Embossing, Scrapbooking, Sketching & Drawing, and Sewing projects,.

This small box doesn’t have the big-impact, scale-wise, as our homemade box, but it’s portable and I love it for tracing projects (mama makes art too!).

I couldn’t have written this post without mentioning that as I was working on this project, my friend Anna at¬†The Imagination Tree¬†posted her own¬†DIY Light Box for Sensory Play.¬†Our projects are nearly identical, and this isn’t for 1 last update 2020/07/13 the first time this has happened! Click on the links to see how Anna made her sensory light box.I couldn’t have written this post without mentioning that as I was working on this project, my friend Anna at¬†The Imagination Tree¬†posted her own¬†DIY Light Box for Sensory Play.¬†Our projects are nearly identical, and this isn’t the first time this has happened! Click on the links to see how Anna made her sensory light box.

Two years ago we both posted the same project, on the same day. Here’s a peak: If you have a toddler, you might also enjoy my Colander Sculpture and Anna’s¬†Discovery Box Pipe Cleaners.¬†The Imagination Tree is one of my favorite blogs. If you’re a hands-on parent I’m sure you’ll love it too, so do check it out if it’s not already on your radar.

      Anna, that’s entirely untrue! Your photos are gorgeous, and I especially love seeing how your kids interact with this box. xx
