Mirror Image Drawing
Picture of an animal; heavy paper; pencil; crayons, watercolors or pastels; tape or glue
My daughter's Kindergarten class did this as an activity last year and the pictures came out gorgeous! Find in a magazine a full page 8 1/2 x 11 picture of an animal, if possible just of the face. Fold or cut the picture in half vertically. Tape or glue the half picture to a thick piece of paper, drawing or painting quality, if possible. Have your child draw with a pencil a mirror image of the animal's half face (or complete the rest of the animal if it is a full body picture). Then have him fill in the details and color with watercolors, crayons, colored pencils or pastels. You will be amazed at the results!
