Djeco Do It Yourself In the Ring

5 items left

A unique STEAM-approved project that brings us back in time to the 19th century, when Thaumatropes were a popular toy with children.

Based on optical illusion, Thaumatropes are usually designed as circular discs with a picture illustrated on each side. And when you twirl the strings on the sides (or sometimes a stick) fast enough, both images magically blend into one!

Comes with everything you need to put together a whopping 12 optical thaumatropes - 6 with strings on their sides and 6 on a stick. Attached with easy-to-understand pictorial instructions so that even those little fingers can figure it out on their own!

• Creativity and self-expression
• Integrated STEAM approach to learning
• Fine motor control and manipulation
• Attention to detail
• Patience and focus
• Mindfulness-based cognitive learning
• Resourcefulness and imaginative thinking
• Confidence and self-esteem

The fun's not over when this project's done - these marvellous thaumatropes are a perfect way to encourage early curiosity into the world of optical illusion; and is a wonderful opportunity to complement an introduction to Science with some good ol' crafting fun!

Includes: materials and components to create 12 optical thaumatropes, set of instructions
