Kids Puzzles - Optical Illusions

Illusions are fun for everyone, but kids tend to really love them! Illusions can vary pretty widely in nature. Some illusions are pictures that trick us into seeing something that isn't actually there while others get some people to see something entirely different than another person might see. Some of these optical illusions just play tricks on our brains and leave us somewhat amazed at how we process information. Any way you look at it - optical illusions are fun for everyone including kids and get us thinking.
