These fun alien monster creatures are created using each child’s name as the design! Just fold, cut, and color – a great lesson in symmetry!
Symmetry was a hot topic during one of our homeschool lessons this past week, so I introduced the boys to this fun art project that turned their names into symmetrical designs – perfect for turning into aliens, monsters, or otherworldly creatures! I remember doing this project (and LOVING it!) when I was in elementary school, and my kids had just as much fun with it as I did!
What You’ll Need:
Fold the cardstock in half lengthwise, and have the child write his name along the folded edge. Use the scissors to carefully cut around the name along the non-folded edge. Unfold to reveal the symmetrical shape of the child’s alien monster creature – this part is SO much fun!
Make ’em silly, scary, sweet or hilarious – the only limit is your imagination! My boys and their friends each made a few different creatures, each one more creative than the last. They had a TON of fun with this project, and I’m sure we’ll be revisiting this one again in the future!
