Traffic Light Suncatcher & Light Table Play {Light & Reflections Series}

The theme for this month's Light & Reflections series is transportation. We've played with cars on the light table before, which was a lot of fun, but I wanted to think outside of the box a little. So, inspired by traffic lights, I set up this color matching light table activity. As a bonus, the finished product turned into a lovely suncatcher craft for kids.

Traffic Light Inspired Light Table Activity & Suncatcher Craft for Kids

For this light table activity and craft, we used:

On the non-sticky side of the contact paper, I drew three circles (one in red, one in yellow, and one in green) using the permanent markers. Since I am terrible at free-handing circles, I used a large yogurt container to trace the circles. Then I taped the contact paper, sticky side up, onto the light table and set out the translucent counters.

The idea is simple: just place the translucent counters into the corresponding circles by matching the colors. The counters will stick to the sticky side of the contact paper.

Once the boys felt that they had placed enough counters onto the contact paper, I removed it from the light table and hanged it on our window. And just like that, we ended up with a pretty traffic light suncatcher craft.
