In art this week we have been thinking about victorian toys and comparing them to modern day toys. We then all had a go at making a thaumatrope. A thaumatrope is an optical toy that was popular in the 19th century. A disk with a picture on each side is attached to two pieces of string or a straw. When the strings are twirled quickly between the fingers the two pictures appear to blend into one due to the persistence of vision. The children came up with some really great ideas!
