Ready to be mesmerized? Well, our Illusion Tunnel activity this week will do just that. Let’s use ART to create our own illusion spinners!

You’ll need:

  • Cardboard or cardstock
  • Ruler
  • Box cutter (for the adults)
  • Penny
  • Markers


  1. Cut out a circle from cardboard or cardstock.
  2. Trace out some lines into a design of your choice.
  3. Colour in the lined sections to create an illusion.
  4. Have an adult carefully make a small slit in the middle of the circle.
  5. Insert the penny into the slit.
  6. Spin your spinner on a flat surface and watch the colours twirl around, mesmerizing you.

These spinners will mesmerize you, just like the illusions in the Children’s Museum Illusion Tunnel does!
