Kids balance many thought processes as they create symmetric images. Creating 3-D models to illustrate symmetry sweetens the activity.
Think about objects and shapes that can be divided into matching halves, such as pumpkins, apples, circles, and hearts.
Draw symmetric shapes (shapes that can be divided in half equally) on white paper with Crayola® Washable Markers. Then form your symmetric shapes with Crayola Model Magic.
Figure out the line of symmetry for each shape (where to cut to get two mirror image halves). Cut all the shapes in half on their lines of symmetry with Crayola Scissors.
Decorate both halves of each shape exactly the same with markers.
For even more challenge, ask a partner to hide the finished half from your view. Your partner describes what the piece looks like. You try to decorate the second half using only your partner's directions. Then bring the two halves together to see if there is sweet symmetry.

Why create and play original games? Kids think analytically and improve organization skills!
