Light and Shadows Pre-school STEM/ Science Experiments

A lovely calm and cool session on Friday. Tiny Adventurers had the chance to play with light and shadows! The perfect antidote to the summer heat! If you want to calm and cool things down try digging out your torches and closing all the curtains!

We used a sheet and desk lamp to make shadows. We added a variety of opaque and translucent items to play with.

We made a den out of our playpen and a black blanket and the UV Lightbox using my nail lamp and a clear box 🙂

Here is a very simple homemade light box or light table. Clear box, tissue paper (perhaps from a shoe box) and a LED work torch from Asda (£7.00 ish). Endless possibilities!
