Mirror Images: For this activity, you will need paper, pencils, and markers or crayons. You will need to pick a simple object, such as a tree. You will then give your child verbal, (2 steps at a time) directions as to what to draw. You will instruct then to draw your picture, without using it any words that would indicate what the actual picture is. For example you would refrain from using words such as; truck, leaves, or branches. Instead you would use descriptive words and shape words to help your child to create the picture. When you have finished giving the verbal directions and your child has completed their drawing, share and compare!
