Exploring Light Treasure Basket

We do love getting the light box out every now and then. BB was asking for it just the other week. This time I thought I would go a little bit further and create an exploring light treasure basket to go with it.

Make sure you follow my sensory board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own exploring light treasure basket you will need:

The above list is just a small selection of what you could add, I also added a mason jar that we had painted with glass paints. The sensory bottles we used were ones taken from my original treasure basket I made 12 years ago, and the water bead ones I made in June.

Getting stuck in

I set up the basket next to the light box. BB could either use the objects with the light box or independently.

He enjoyed sitting on the floor with me shining the lights through the different crystal balls and prisms to see all the rainbows and patterns it made. The coloured filters were also a hit, BB would try to copy me as I put them up to my eyes or shone the touch through them.

If you enjoyed this exploring light treasure basket be sure to check out my refraction experiment and stained glass night-light jars.
