Last week, I gave you a sneak peek into the ins and outs of making your own light table.
(Well, at least our versions of them!) There are oodles of different things you can do with a light table, but one of our favorites is to draw on it!
Sometimes we use sand and sometimes we use salt. Today, we covered our table with a layer of salt and then added a package of dry Kool-Aid to give the salt a slight tint and a wonderful smell!
I love how the light adds optical aesthetics to this tactile activity.
Even some of our younger friends found this activity to be intriguing.
