What You'll Need

  • Paper
  • Paint Brush
  • Paints
  • 45 mins
  • Ages 2 - 6
  • Inside

When you look in the mirror,
You see another you...

Now see what happens to wet paint,
When you fold the paper in two!

Getting Started:

  • Fold paper in two to create a crease, then press flat again.
  • Put blobs of paint on one side of the paper.
  • Now fold the paper along the crease and press down hard.
  • Open it up and what do you see? One side is the mirror image of the other, isn’t it? But what does it look like? A butterfly, a monster?
  • Let the picture dry, then cut it out.
