I purchased an old Overhead projector from Craigslist for $30. This is something that was always inspiring to the students in my classroom when I was a teacher, so I knew my son would love it. What a great way to learn through play! There are so many ways to explore with a projector. Here are a few.

Great way to learn about colors, shapes, shadows.....
You can even play ON the projector.
Its also a great way to inspire imagination: "Im making a forest, Mommy. Ooooooh - look at that forest. Maybe there are bats and spiders in there....and lots and lots of trees.....and maybe there is a woodpecker - going bam bam bam bam on the tree - like that, Mommy."
