The beauty of symmetry

Elsie has been making butterfly pictures with random paint splodges for as long as she's been able to hold a paintbrush. Recently she's been learning about symmetry and has realised that all sorts of interesting things can be chopped in half and reconstructed.

The one she did of Bear was alarmingly accurate!

Millie thinks you shouldn't stop at just one fold, and turns every painting into a very soggy present that I gingerly unwrap and enthusiastically praise while trying to keep paint off the floor. Thank goodness we covered the table in cheap oilcloth not Cath Kidston!
