Make it Together: Thaumatrope

Primary tabs

Program Description

Event Description

Each Make it Together kit contains supplies for two people and is intended to be a project for an adult and child to work on together. We believe talking through activities, spending time, and working together with a child builds communication, trust, and literacy.
A Thaumatrope is a spinning toy from early 19th century that easily fascinates by creating an optical illusion or trick of the eye. Grab a kit and make your own and just see if you aren't amazed.


This program is designed for children and accompanying adults. Please plan to be in attendance and be engaged with your child for this program.
