We decided to make our own light table for the classroom. We have very handy dad/husbands who help us out around the classroom. We come up with the ideas and they find a way to create/build it for us.
We bought the light kit at Lowes. It comes with a remote and we can change the color of the lights. We bought accessories on Amazon for the light table. The Plexiglas was bought at the local Menards, and comes in various sizes.
We had a wooden table one of the husbands built four years ago and it has housed sand, crushed up water bottles(sand like texture) Blocks, play food and dinosaurs. Now it has transformed into a light table! We put the light table in one half of the wooden table and then left the other side open to place our light table accessories.
