Light + Black/White
We find the darkness of winter to be a perfect time to explore light. The darker evenings help the light shine brighter, which is fascinating to little ones. Most recently, our flashlight walk inspired further light table explorations.
Tape White Paper onto your light table.
Lay out the markers and foam.
Allow for free exploration. This is an activity that we left out for a week in the afternoons. They came and went from the light table as they felt inspired. At times, it was approached as a creative invitation with lots of coloring and tracing. Other times, the black and white encouraged conversations and opportunities for language development. Try to work new words into your observations and discussions such as; white, black, dark, light, night, day.
