While Easter is still fresh in my mind (i.e. we still have some bits of chocolate egg left and the decorations haven’t been put away yet) here’s a fun little chicky trick to amuse the kidlets…
Take a sheet of paper (portrait style) and draw an egg. Or an Easter egg 😉
Take another sheet of paper (landscape style) and draw a little chicky.
Place the papers criss-cross[is gonna make you jump, jump] with the chicken paper on top of the egg paper.
Roll them up around a pencil. All the way. Remember that the chicken was on top…
Now you’re going to unroll and – hey presto – the egg now came first!
Don’t even think of asking me how I did it… Because a) a Magician never reveals her tricks and b) I don’t know! 😉
Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂

Ok I just read that 3x and and looked at the pics and I cant figure out how you did it either LOL
i'm supposed to be going to bed but I just had to search for a pen so I could try this. Yes! It works! It's so magic… awesome! I just did it again! The best trick ever!!! Give me a moebus band and I'll be happy for hours. Or a piece of paper that says "please turn over" on both sides LOL. I'm quietly going insane obviously!Well maybe not quietly LOL :o) :o) thx for sharing :o)
Hi Van Buren Mom! Did you try it yourself? Very confusing, but it works! 🙂
PS: Thanks for stopping by from twitterville! 😀
Hey Asfora, now you've got *me* on the Möbius band thing. Have you ever tried cutting one all the way round, lengthwise? Going to do that with kids today! 🙂 xo
I just did it! I wasn't expecting that!?! THEN I tried cutting it into thirds instead of halves and something extra special happens! It is awesome! :o)
Hi Asfora! Tee hee, who knew that a piece of paper and a pair of scissors could produce *so* much excitement?! xo
