Magic in Light {Baby Light Play}

Hi all! It's Ashlee from Loving Naturally back again. Welcome to another Playful Baby post!

Light can some times be taken for granted, it's not until we are in the dark that we truly appreciate the magic and wonder that light brings. Turning a wall into a puppet show or a pumpkin into something spooky.
For a toddler exploring light is just as magical. Little A loves light torches, they can keep her entertained for hours, hiding under the bed shining it around. 
This month we decided to have a light station in our play area. Not owning a light table we had to get creative.
Taking a small shelf, some frosted glass from our old coffee table and a lamp we got to work. We put the shelf on its back, the lamp inside and then the glass over the top we made a quick and simple light table right at Little A's height.

First we started with our see through color blocks then moved onto plastic sticky notes and Little A's favourite... plastic blocks. Sitting these blocks atop of the light they GLOWED. The magic took over and we spent the next 45 minutes exploring the different colors and how they changed, different brands glowed differently and the higher we stacked them the less "magic" they were.

After spending time with the blocks, I let Little A explore on her own. She went and gathered her toys returning with a rubber ducky, a cow and a couple of other small bits and bobs. These kept her happy and content for ages and all we did was add light, by doing this we opened up a new world to explore filled with wonder and limitless fun.

This month we are giving away a Grimm's Medium Stacking Rainbow. All you have to do is share how your baby plays with light on Instagram (#playfulbabychallenge @squigglesandbubbles @loving_naturally @squishelsandme @mummy_loz @xoxo_beautiful_chaos_xoxo) or on Squiggles and Bubbles' Facebook Page before the 20th of August 2017, for all the fine print click here.
