It seems like light tables are all over kids craft/ homeschooling blogs. Often times I wonder how in the world I could get one of these. The solution is found in this great post from Tinkerlab. The post shows how she economically and simply made her own light table. She was lucky enough to stumble upon an acrylic box frame…but perhaps they are in great supply in all of our towns…if you don’t happen to find a cheap acrylic box frame, she has a link where you can buy one from Amazon. Her photos are wonderful using the light box and salt, and this is definitely a great project that will become part of your child’s daily exploration and learning.
