5 Great Lessons Using Optical Illusions Sponsored by Let the Little Children Come

Let the Little Children Come

We all know how much children love candy! Wouldn’t it be amazing if parents could propel their children’s love for God to be even greater than their love for candy?! Let the Little Children Come has very similar ideas in the matter. Today I received an adorable little package that got me thinking more than I would have on my own. It was a paper pumpkin that you punch out and fold up to create the free standing pumpkin, each side of the pumpkin has a child friendly lesson inside of it. So that each one has to be read before it gets folded to create the pumpkin; little sayings such as “God loves you very much and he wants to be with you not just here on earth, but forever in heaven as well!”

The package also included a really neat optical illusion booklet complete with a view finder, you slide the view finder across the image and the images move and/or change. It was centered on the verse John 3:16, each image portraying something relative to the verse.

How fun! Not only are the kids learning a verse and learning wonderful messages about the love that God has for each of us but they are also learning how to look at things from different perspective and that some things aren’t always as they appear to be, which is in itself a very valuable lesson for children to learn early on.

Living in a world where optical illusions are everywhere, 6 our brains are practically hardwired to misinterpret them as reality. Optical illusions use color, images, and lights to deceive or mislead our brains. It occurs so often in the world that we hardly notice it happening at all. The information that is gathered by our eyes and then relayed to our brain creates a perception that in reality does not match the true image.  This fun piece of science can be used to teach some very valuable lessons!

5 Great Lessons Using Optical Illusions

  1. Teaching children early on how to decipher their own perceptions into what is true reality will help them also learn how to build stronger problem solving and judgment skills.
  2. Learning how to differentiate between reality and misconceptions will create a stronger defense against temptations that so often pull people from the path God has created for them.
  3. Teaching kids not to take things at face value and that “things aren’t always what they seem” will teach them that temptation comes in many forms.
  4. Optical Illusions can be utilized to practice more conscious caution.
  5. Since their mind is automatically forming a perception based on the information that it is receiving when viewing the illusions, we can use that to teach how Satan fools and deceives us.
