Stripes and Symmetry

After looking at pictures of zebras with their black and white stripes, we made our own zebra stripes. We used black paint to make the stripes on one half of a piece of white paper.
Then we folded the paper in half...
and rubbed it a bit. 
When we opened it, there was a very pretty symmetrical set of stripes. 
The children were too young to understand the word symmetrical but they did understand that both sides of the paper were the same. This is the first step in understanding symmetry.
