Matilda's Phizz-whizzing Eye Tricks

Make some crazy glasses and a kaleidoscope, all inspired by Roald Dahl’s Matilda. Matilda’s amazing eye power in the book was inspired by Roald Dahl’s fascination with the tricks that eyes could play. In this workshop you’ll get to make some contraptions to help you explore some eye-bending illusions yourself.
