Optical Illusion

This is an oldie, but a goodie!  Students traced and cut out one shape on two colors of construction paper, yellow and either white or brown if they want a chocolate rabbit.  They added features to the yellow shape to make it look like a duck, and to the white or brown shape to make it look like a rabbit.  They glued the two shapes together and then added the following poems on each side: 

My little yellow duck
Is really very funny,
For when you turn him over
He is an Easter Bunny!

  Little Easter Bunny
You show the strangest luck,
For when I turn you back again
You are a yellow duck!

I like to hang them from our strings so that you can see both sides!  They looked so cute hanging from the ceiling, and the kids loved making them!

My daughter recently told me that these are called "dunnies!" Who knew?
