After a round of symmetry yoga, my boys enthusiastically jumped into making these symmetrical paper cutouts. In the process, I said, “Isn’t math awesome?” And my oldest exclaimed, “This is math?!?” Find his Darth Vader mask in the attached photo.

We have four chapters of symmetry games in the Moebius Noodles book, including movement games and paper cutouts. Symmetry Yoga is Jennifer’s own invention.
