Afternoon Fun

Here are five fascinating optical illusions. Take a look at these mindbending brain games and discover how things aren’t always as they seem…
Each optical illusion comes with a detailed yet simple explanation to help you understand the science behind how they work. How is it possible that colours can disappear before our eyes? How can straight lines appear to bend?


Have a go at each optical illusion. Which brain games do you find most fascinating? Are there any that you feel work better than others?
Talk about the optical illusions with someone at home. Were their experiences similar? Do they share the same opinions?
