We love small world activities and light table activities so what’s better than combing the two? Small world activities let kids explore the world around them in a playful and hands-on way. My kids can’t get enough of small world activities so I’m always on the hunt for new activities. Adding the sensory experiences that come with the light table is a great way to increase the benefits of small world play for kids. Below you will find a list of our favorites activities that combine light table play with small world exploration!
