Sometime back I had a post about the squeeze paint and fold art. CJ was pretty impressed with the art. This time we created symmetry fold art using finger paints.
We used Creativity for Kids Finger Prints kit. But you can also use washable paints or make homemade finger paints using the recipe from Hands on as we grow blog
Finger paints/Washable paints
Small Foam paint roller
Cookie tray/ finger paint tray
Fold a sheet of paper horizontally or vertically or Diagonally.
Unfold the paper again.
Draw a half heart(or any half symmetry image) as shown below and let your kid fill in colors.
[***you can either draw or use templates from the superteacherworksheet.com link mentioned at the end of the post]
Fold the paper back over again and press thoroughly with hand to transfer paint from one half to another
Peel Open and Tada! Beautiful symmetry art!
Since CJ didn't press the fold well, the paint was missing at some places in the other half. For better results, we ran the foam Paint roller on the fold to transfer the paint

I was thinking to create some templates for the symmetry art. But then I just googled for symmetry work sheets and stumbled upon this site superteacherworksheets.com. They have a bunch of links under symmetry work sheets, in that I feel the cut and fold symmetry pdf can be used as the symmetry art pages.
