Hattifant’s Easter Thaumatropes

Now, here is a new paper toy for Easter this year that I actually have difficulties pronouncing correctly…but so much fun anyway… 🙂

Sorry, this is really rather shaky but it is so tricky to show this with a camera, even video doesn’t do the eye justice here.

And here is a video for those visual crafters in the crowd…



First things first. This is not a tricky craft at all! So don’t worry.

  • Simply print off the templates,

Hattifant's Thaumatrope_Easter2015_USletterPDF version for US Letter (8.5×11 inches)

  • cut out the shapes,


  • either make your own design on the blank version or colour in the other ones if you like,
  • find a straw, or other round stick available (even a paint brush will do)
  • tape it on the inside of one of the shapes,


  • put double sided tape or glue on the other shape (inside)
  • and close it.

Start twirlling!!!
