I don’t think many of the “tots” who ever used the old Spirotot toy – a basic version of Spirograph designed for smaller children – ever made patterns like this. It requires mastery not typical of 5-year-olds.
Ariella Zwillinger from Maryland, who sent photos of a Spirograph collage she made last winter, has produced another Spirograph masterpiece, this one made using a vintage Spirotot that was in her basement.
You can see how she carefully cut out the patterns and arranged them overlapping slightly in a grid formation. They’re all about the same size, and each is drawn with at least a couple of similar colors. The patterns make it look like there are more than two colors involved.
Another awesome job by Ariella. I hope this inspires you to do more with Spirograph!
