This interactive Swimming Mermaid Craft is lots of fun and introduces kids to the simple curl animation technique which tricks the eye into seeing 2 similar images as moving. Curl animation is so much easier for kids to master than flip books and loads of fun. Kids can colour in this cute printable mermaid and have her waving her hand and swishing her tail in minutes! Once kids see the principle of curl animation working they’ll be set to have a go at drawing their own too. The sky’s the limit!
