Thaumatropes: First Saturday in Historic Stevensville
All ages. Drop in to make a thaumatrope at the Kent Island branch, and then visit the Cray House in Historic Stevensville to see the vintage version!
A thaumatrope is an optical toy that was popular in the 19th century. A disk with a picture on each side is attached to two pieces of string. When the strings are twirled quickly between the fingers, the two pictures appear to blend into one.
