I was really interested in trying some symmetry drawing with my preschooler. It looks like a fun way to teach children about symmetry and art. I initially downloaded these insect symmetry drawing cards but once I had them I could tell they were way too hard for my four-year-old.
I made up some of my own cards by downloading basic images and removing half of the image.
As this was the first time presenting this work to my child, I gave him a mirror to show him what the complete image would look like.
This was really tricky work.
Flowers, faces, butterflies, and (some) fruits are interesting symmetric images to use.
The youngest I'd try this is with a four-year-old. Older children may catch on quicker and be more accurate.
I can see that this type of drawing really made him think.
We also tried some animal faces.
I already had these Easter-themed fold and cut sheets. It turns out they work well for symmetry drawing too.
