Welcome to the Homeschool Mom’s Craft Table. Enjoy a quick foray into the world of art; join us as we delve into projects, offer helpful tips, explore new tools, and encourage all things creative. Come along and share a world of fun!
I am surrounded by a world of creativity. My husband is a professional illustrator and my children are aspiring artists. There are a multitude of mediums available for our kiddos to use and many tools at their disposal. One tool we use on a regular basis is our light board!
The first time our children used a light board was at a local museum. Their children’s area had an entire section dedicated to art and helping children to understand the concept of using a light board. Our children were so fascinated by this concept we spent a great deal of time in this room alone and found it a challenge to lure them into exploring other areas.
Our children use their light board for calligraphy and drawing. They make an initial outline and then use their light board to clean up their work and refine their projects. I’ve used the light board myself!
Having a light board was a small investment financially, but a large investment educationally.
