15 Preschool Light Table Ideas

Here are just a few of the ways we've used our light table in the classroom.

 Glass beads (Dollar Tree) and a clear divider tray.

 Sensory bottles/bags.

 Water beads - sorting and scooping.

Laminated fall leaves for science exploration.

Money and glass beads with clear sorting tray.

Mosaic tiles with mirror.

Translucent gak/goop/slime - replace white glue with clear glue.

Magnet wand with magnetic discs - play silk over table.


  1. These are fun! I LOVE the laminated leaves. What a great idea! And is it just paint in your sensory bags?

    1. Thanks, Laurie, those leaves were shipped to Arizona especially for us! We can't find them like that around here, so it was a new experience for most of the kiddos. The sensory bags are a base of clear gel - that I colored with food coloring as well as matching water beads (they won't shrink in the gel) and matching colored beads of various shapes and sizes.

  2. Great ideas! Thanks for linking to Share It Saturday- I'll be featuring your post tomorrow!
