A very old fashioned toy which kids still like a lot, this optical illusion. It works so simple: roll the straw between your hands and then watch what happens :)

Use a puncher to press out even exact circles.

Don't have a puncher? Trace circles around a glass and cut out.

Draw animals on one side, their 'homes' on the other.

Trace your drawings with the black marker.
