If you were paying attention to the DIY Light Table post, you may have noticed a little sneak peek of today's post.
Light Tables are such great learning tools, but the toys made specifically for them can get pricey. Today I have for you...
Have you ever been walking around your favorite craft store just waiting for inspiration to strike? It's dangerous, I know.
I was doing just that when I spotted these...
They're simple keychains. Probably meant to hold a picture or something, but I saw their hidden potential. At the time Abbey had a set of color discs that came with a play set she had brought home from school. She loved using them on her new light table, but we were going to have to give them back. I knew that these keychains were the answer to my problem! All I needed was a way to color them...
Cue inspiration number 2! Abbey loves those paint-your-own "stained glass" kits, and that glaze was exactly what I needed.
I used the glaze to fill up a keychain in each color.
and set them out to dry. Aren't they pretty?
They're PERFECT on Abbey's light table!
They live on a binder ring, and just get tossed into the bin when we're not playing with the light box. Easy peasy!
These would make great stocking stuffers for a little one who already has a light table.
Don't have a light table? You could make your own, and one of these color disc sets for less than $40! Sounds pretty budget friendly to me!
