Make Curves With Straight Lines

make a gods eye with stringDraw straight lines to create curved lines? These string art puzzles are ancient and fascinating optical illusions that will turn all straight lines into curved ones.

These designs can also be used as patterns for creating actual string art. All you need is colored string, a wooden base, small hammer and some small nails. Tape the printed pattern to the wood base as a guide.

Geometric string line art games can improve cognitive perception and visual development in young children and those with mental disabilities. Print these designs and use your ruler or straight edge along with colored pencils or markers to connect matching numbers. These designs all use mathematical patterns to give the illusion of curved lines. Mix colors for a rainbow of color.
