We explored 3D shapes by constructing with transparent blocks on the light table. The colors and angles were highlighted as the kids turned and studied the different faces and properties. What a playful and colorful way to introduce a math concept!

We absolutely love our ongoing partnership with Discount School Supply! We've shared with you how much we've enjoyed their IncredibleFoam Dough by Colorations, My Place in the World Geography Craft, and Alphabet City Sorting Center. This time we were invited to review products for our light table! We chose Excellerations Translucent Light Blocks, letter jewels, and transluscent mosaic shapes.
I set the blocks on the light table as an invitation to explore after dinner. Our two and five year olds were excited to get their hands on these new light table toys!
We noticed that you can try pretty creative color mixing with the blocks! There were many ways to demonstrate how primary colors mix to create secondary colors.
