Crafty Tuesday - Chicken or the (Easter) Egg Trick

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! :)

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! :D

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
