Victorian kids toys

Make a Thaumatrope - they're not period, they're Victorian but they are a great craft for kids to make and then they can keep kids occupied during court. We're going to make one with a laurel leaf on one side and a crown on the other (our kingdom's symbols) for a coronation event youth activity.

A thaumatrope was a hugely popular toy in Victorian times, a kind of old-school stop motion trick, or an old-school show with only one channel. With the wonder of persistence of vision, a bird magically transported into a cage with just a twirl of a string.
