I was super excited to get my kids a light table this Christmas! Massachusetts winters can be long and dark, and sometimes that starts to feel pretty gloomy. I blog for ALEX Toys, and when I saw their Prism Light Center I thought it would be a great way to brighten up these long, cold months!
I’ve been a little bit obsessed with light tables ever since my kids and I discovered them through a local museum. I hoped the kids would share my enthusiasm, and I was not disappointed. They were immediately entranced, and the light table has led to hours of quiet, focused small world play, as well as fun explorations with light:
Here you can see them using our prism bricks on the light table:
This table comes with legs that can be added or left off. I chose to leave them off, because this way five-month-old Anna can join in on the fun, and we can stand the table up on its side for storage (using its built-in carry handle!) – perfect for smaller space living!
We’ve been doing a lot of exploring with our light table. Do you have an activity for us to try?
I received the Prism light center and bricks featured in this post as part of my relationship with ALEX Toys. All opinions are my own.
