Optical illusions & impossible figures

Coloring pages are a great pastime for children of all ages. On our website you will find many different motifs on different subject areas. And especially drawings of optical illusions and impossible figures, so-called paradoxes, fascinate every child. But also adults!

Optical illusions to print out

Optical illusions are a collective term used to describe all aspects of false human vision. On the one hand, this can happen if we see things differently than they really are through a certain representation. Or different people recognize other things in the same template or things are drawn in a way that can never occur in familiar surroundings and our brain becomes confused as a result.
