When you find that you have a little bit of free time on your hands, what do you do to pass the time and to keep yourself entertained? Many people will simply reach for their iPad or cell phone but there are also many other things you can do in the “real world” that will also keep you entertained as well. This video shows you a rolling toy option that you might want to consider.
For this little toy experiment, you will need some Styrofoam or plastic rings and either some superglue or a hot glue gun. You attach the rings together at one spot and wait until the glue dries completely. It is then just a matter of rolling them across the floor and watching as a little optical illusion takes place right before your eyes. You can even paint them interesting colors to extend the illusion.
This is not only something that you can do as a fun experiment on your own, you can also do it with your children. They are certain to appreciate the effect that they will see and it helps to teach them something about optical illusions and the world around them.
