Spinning art

On Monday, we had friends over to make a thaumatrope. It's an optical illusion created with two spinning pictures.

Leah is coloring one side - a snowman.

Rachel is coloring the other side - a hat, scarf and gloves.

And here is what happens when you spin the images - a snowman dressed with his hat, scarf and gloves!

    What a fun idea! I love that you have friends over to do fun art projects with you. Wish we lived closer so we could come over and play too 🙂 Leah’s concentration while coloring is adorable!!

    Looks like this was a real hit! Leah is so focused on her snowman! Go, Leah! Lovya!
