Symmetrical pumpkins in preschool

by Deborah J. Stewart, M.Ed. on October 9, 2010

in Creative Art, pumpkins

Try this simple pumpkin activity to introduce a little symmetrical perspective!

For each child, cut out a pumpkin shape…

Cut it in half and glue one half to a sheet of construction paper…

Now glue an eye, half of a nose, and draw half of a mouth….

Give the other half of the pumpkin, the nose, and the eye to the child…

Let the child finish the pumpkin…

You could waste a 1000 words trying to describe symmetry to young children — and I have!. Like so much in ECE, this is something that can only be understood through experiences like this. I really like this. =)

I couldn’t waste a 1000 words describing symmetry because I barely understand it myself! LOL!!
