Bellevue Hospital, 08/16/11

Who knew that thaumatropes were the most fun thing to make ever??  Well now Jane Archer, Jeanine Henderson, Elizabeth Winter and the awesome Bellevue kids do.  These kids were incredibly polite and talented.  One boy said, “I’m so happy I got to be a part of this” and another boy stunned all the adults by being the only one who could figure out how to make one of our thaumatropes work by changing the orientation of the strings’ holes.  Very impressive!  Thanks, everyone for a truly heartwarming and whirling good time!
