This was a super fun and easy project for the light table! It can be adapted for different age groups too. Older children could most likely come up with some pretty cool sculpture ideas, younger kids may need a little bit of assistance.
We have a set of 100 invisiball ball pit balls that we use for light table play, and we have been trying to find a way to put more of them to use. Realistically you can't really use 100 ball pit balls on a light table all at the same time.
So we decided to get out the hot glue gun and see if they are able to be glued together, and they are! I was afraid the balls would melt at first, however they do not melt at all! You just need to get your low temp hot glue gun heated up, and then start gluing! It is best to only glue two balls together at once, then hold them for about 5 seconds until the glue sets. If you mess up, no worries...once the glue cools, it peels off of the balls easily.
Check out our cool bubble sculptures below! We made a tower, a tunnel bridge, and a wall that has balls in the back to hold it up! So fun! I think we will try adding some light spangles and sequins to them tomorrow!
