Magic Mirrors

A reflective look at how two halves make a whole.



Magic Mirrors

What you need:

  • construction paper 
  • markers, crayons 
  • scissors 
  • safety mirror 

What to do:

  1. Ask your child to draw a few simple pictures of familiar objects. Then cut the pictures in half lengthwise. 
  2. Let him place the mirror next to each half-picture. What does he see?
  3. Draw half a shape on a piece of paper. Then ask him to guess what shape it is. He can use the mirror to see the whole shape. Encourage him to draw half a shape and to see if you can guess what shape it is without using the mirror!
