Symmetrical Paintings!

Fold a piece of paper in half. Open it again and have your child paint on one half of the piece of paper using a little more paint than normal. Fold the paper in half again to transfer the paint from one side to another. This will create a symmetrical design. Have your child observe the shapes they painted and how they look in the mirror image!
