How do mirrors work? What is light, and how does it travel? Explore light and reflection with your preschooler with these simple hands-on experiments. Kids are often fascinated by mirrors and flashlights, and this is the perfect opportunity to dig a little deeper to find out more about how light behaves. Not only will your child learn about light, she'll also practice observing and drawing conclusions about what she sees.
