Pumpkin Optical Illusion

We’ve had a lot of fun today making Halloween versions of our Optical Illusion. What do you think of our pumpkin? Just roll the pencil between your hands to see the face appear in the pumpkin.

What you need:

  • white cardboard
  • pencils and colouring pens
  • scissors
  • glue/sellotape


  • Cut out two shapes from a sheet of white cardboard.
  • Draw whatever you want, if you don’t fancy a pumpkin how about a haunted mansion on one piece and a ghost on the other?
  • Glue or sellotape a pencil in between the two pictures.
  • Hold the pencil between your palms and rub your hands to make the picture spin around.

If you design your own optical illusion we’d love to see it.
