Step 2: Stick out your index finger and make a big circle in front of you. As you do this, let your eyes follow your index fingers (don't move your head!).
After the eye-xercise, our children were splitted into various groups. Some went for the eye-test first. They were seated 6 metres away from the number chart and were asked to call out the numbers selected for them. Most of them had pretty good eye-sight, phew!
Our 5- and 6-year-olds were measuring the various sizes of the items seen on the pictures. Their eyes were playing trick on them! See below for examples of optical illusion arts that we showed our children.
(Answer: Both middle circles are of the same size!)
Optical Illusion Art 2: Do you see any animals in this picture? If yes, what are they and how many can you find?
All the children did eye-crafts at the end of the Eye-Day. They were supposed to be optical illusion art. Some were successfully made, some not so, and we are going to try and make it again with the children for the coming weeks. This also made us realise that the experience of making the craft is very important to make the illusion work. Hence, we are going to make the children practice making them more before they can get it right.
