Light Box

Sabrina makes art on a light box

All through the school year I coveted the light box at Sabrina's Reggio-inspired preschool. The children used it in all kinds of creative ways--they placed glass stones and transparent blocks on it to create art, they put their hands and feet on it to see the light shine through, they used it to look at x-rays of animals, and they put paper on it to draw over the glowing surface. The light box is one of the staples of the Reggio Emilia classroom, and it will soon have a place in our home as I've ordered a small one for us. I cannot wait to see what fun ideas it inspires!
