Light Up Your Life (With These Light Table Links!)

As you might have noticed in our “Bear Says ‘Thank You'” post, we got new light tables at Kids Nook. We are in love with these cool new tables, and as a way to celebrate I thought it’d be fun to share some great light table activities with you!

1) Watercolor on the Light Table


2) X-Rays (always a winner!)


3) Story Cups


4) Mandala Beads 


5) Of course… Water Beads! 


Enjoy a little light in your life!
