Light Boxes

This week in the baby room we started exploring our new Light and Dark monthly topic. For our first activity we went into the dark sensory room and explored light boxes, materials, and shiny rings. As part of this activity, we experimented on a light piece of material and a dark piece of material, we used the light boxes to explore light and shadow on the materials. We also observed colour and shade using the materials and rings. To then extend this activity we explored a light tray with sensory shapes looking at the colour changes in the light when the shapes are on top of the tray. This was also a great way for us to build on our mathematical skills through exploring space and shape and creating new shapes by piecing the shapes alongside each other.
