Symmetry Drawing = the easiest boredom busting busy kids happy kids activity EVER!
Kids, especially toddlers, need very little to be content and busy. We love a quick Button Sorting by the Hole Activity, Felt Shapes Sorting Activity and Salt Painting Tray Activity whenever I see my kids need a little calm activity, mama needs to make a phone call or kids simply overplayed with their toys. It happens!
So this super easy and quick to set-up Symmetry Drawing activity is yet another favorite that will stick in our home for a while. There’s so many endless possibilities with these symmetry drawing cards. So much to draw, make them hard and complicated or easy and basic. Choose different colors for different parts of the drawing, making the matching a bit more difficult.
For my 2 year old I did super easy pictures and for my 4 year old a bit harder. I chose a different color for each symmetry drawing so they can not only improve their drawing skills, but match colors and learn them too!
