Haunted House At Home

You’re really tired, but part of you is saying “Get out of bed! Get out of bed! Time for school!”  Well, here’s how  you can agree with that other half of you. 

Stare at these eyes:


and count “1 Halloween, 2 Halloween, 3 Halloween,” all the way up to 60.  Then look directly up at the ceiling.  Skull!!! Get out of bed! Get out of bed!  Pretty creepy, huh?  It’s just an optical illusion.

    Thanks for the cool optical illusion. You should do a classroom unit on how those work 🙂

    Your friend from AAP,

    Wow! I just tried it and it really creeped me out. I hope I don’t see it again when I go to bed tonight.
