Optical Illusion Toy: Decotropes

Tuesday, January 21, 3:15-4:15 PM.

Kids will be making items that are similar to a thuamaotrope which is a classic optical illusion toy consisting of a card with two different pictures on each side; when spun rapidly the pictures appear to combine. Since they are using a pattern rather than a picture, the optical illusion toy will have it’s own name: Decotropes. Trope is the part of the word that means turning around and Deco stands for decorative. Using a template to be colored, kids will put together one or more Decotropes.

Ages 6 to 11 years.
