This craft helps children with both literacy and math. Cut a pair of wings from construction paper and on one side write letters that are symmetrical (we used A,M,Y,W,T,H,I,O,V,U). Have the children trace the letters with paint then fold the butterfly in half. Show them that the letters are the same on both sides, and that butterflies wings are the same on both sides, or symmetrical. Have them experiment with different letters to see which ones are symmetrical and which ones are not.
