Simple Light Box Idea

Here’s a simple light box I made at home with my boys over the weekend. We bought a $3 light from Dollarama and put it under an opaque empty margarine container from my mom. I believe she buys them at Sobey’s. So, altogether it cost me $3 and the boys enjoyed looking at old photo negatives, leaves and other small items on it, and then decided to use it for tracing. It entertained them for a good 1.5 hours!

Light Box Set-Up

Here’s the light box we are working on at the office to try it out. So far we have the clear tote (from Walmart, $12) lined with tin foil to keep the light in, and a push light (from Walmart, $10. This one is LED so its pretty bright, but cheaper ones are available at the Dollar Stores). The next step will be to line the lid with tissue paper to allow the light to shine through.
