The unique interactive art piece has been created especially for the setting by Richard Molineux, stained-glass artist and conservator based near Alnwick.

Children at Little Acorns spend a lot of their time outside in a woodland environment and the kaleidoscope is a fine addition to their play space.

It consists of a spectrum of stained-glass pieces set into a bicycle wheel which rotates on an axle. It introduces the children to colours, stained glass, angles, symmetry, shapes and the wonder of mirrors.

Little Acorns’ pre-school leader Sue Courty said it is a sensory masterpiece.
