Let’s have some light table fun!
Today I have some really fun light table projects to share with you. Light tables are so.much.fun!
Make your own kid-friendly light table at home
You can make your own simple light table by buying a big transparent plastic box with a lid and filling it with Christmas lights. Trust me, your kids will love it and think Christmas came early this year! 😉
3 of my favorite light table projects for special needs kids
This project is a wonderful follow-up to a leaf gathering outing. Take your little one to the park and collect leaves. Bring them home, add some flowers, and you have quick and simple light table materials that provide lots of learning possibilities.
This activity, created by an autism mom, is fun and educational. It is a wonderful way to work on naming eyes, ears, nose, mouth, eye brows, etc. You can also explore the idea that many parts make a whole (you need to comebine all of the parts of the face to make a complete face). You can also work on fine motor, drawing and coloring skills with this activity. This activity is great.
A fabulous use of popsicle sticks and cellophane! Make your own “tiles” using all kinds of fun materials (photos, dried flowers, dried leaves, tissue paper, to name a few) and engage your child in some exploratory play on the light table.
Share the love!
I have been so touched by the outpouring of love on my Special Learning House Instagram page. The page gives you a behind the scenes look at our day to day life at Le Chemin ABA, my center for children with special needs in Paris. I share photos of projects we are working on, images linking back to articles of interest on the blog and program tips. The page is growing and at the moment, there are 345 of you who share your kind words, sweet thoughts and information about all of your beautiful kids with me daily. I am feeling so.much.love. I love hearing about your kids, the programs you’re working on, the homeschool (and regular school) goals you have for your kiddos and your favorite recipes and projects too! Keep all of this info coming! 🙂 Follow me on Instagram if you’re not following already for more great kids’ program ideas.
I want to hear from you!
