Piano Light Box

Something different to light up your piano lessons.  If you don't have a light box, make your own.  I used a rubbermaid clear's about a foot long.  I drew a keyboard...the keys are each 3/4-inch wide.  I put some pretty glass stones on there.  I used red stones and used permanent marker to draw ladybugs.  The light makes it fun and the stones glow.  You could use any light...flashlight, white christmas lights, or one of those disc-shaped battery lights that you just push to turn on.
Glass stone idea inspired by  Check out this more than fabulous website.
