A thaumatrope is a simple way of animating your drawings using a few common materials from around the home. Make a spinning thaumatrope of your own with little more than cardboard, markers, and two elastic bands.

Join us for our weekly Family Open Studio, every Saturday at 1 pm on IGTV.

Visit us virtually on Instagram, where you can engage in a new family-friendly art project each week from the comfort of your home.
