I like to tie a positive and negative assignment in with the symmetry lesson
and have them make a cut out of one sheet of paper while gluing the cut out on
a larger sheet of paper.
Side by side they can be quite interesting. You can even use a color's
complimentary color and tie that lesson in too..

I did this project with kindergartners: Blob Creatures.

It involved primary and secondary colors as well as symmetry.

Fold a piece of paper in half. Open the paper.
Paint blobs of primary colors on one half.
Fold paper and rub to blend paint.
Open paper. See what astounding creatures appeared. When dry, add details
with marker and title the work.

I showed kids butterfly pictures and also talked about faces (yeah, not
typically symmetrical, but close enough)--eyes on both sides, ears on both
sides, mouth in the middle etc.

SOrry, I have now posted 2 photos.
One is the paper symmetry and the other is Indian Sand Art by 4th graders.
It is paint onto sand paper with the background left unpainted.
Hope it helps,
