I put this out in my math and manipulatives center whenever the theme is appropriate, or the mood strikes. I decided to put the lite brite and some blank papers for poking out during Bucket Filling because it is so full of color and life! We also work a lot on patterning (as you will see), so patterning and shape making is so fun with the lite brite!
The kids love poking and creating. I even showed a few how to make their names out of light!
