Mr 4 and Miss 7 love playing with this homemade light box. We used things we could find around the house (glass beads, checker pieces and straws). Mr 4 added his cars on a later play. We also made some cellophane shapes by cutting out holes in black paper and placing different coloured cellophane onto these.
Our box has ridges in the lid which is not ideal as it is not a flat surface. If you are looking for a box to use, I think you will get an even broader range of play without the ridges.
The set-up is so easy that the kids can turn on the lights themselves and find various objects suitable for the top.
There is something about playing in the dark that kids enjoy. Try this out quickly before Winter ends and daylight saving begins! Do your kids love playing in the dark?
