I got out the paints for my daughter today and pretty much left her to her own devices. She started off painting a wooden box from her birthday. When she was done with that, she asked if she could paint on tissues and later on fabric.
I found it interesting to see her exploring symmetry by folding the tissues and fabric. I did this exact same thing in school and clearly remember the lesson. It was neat to see her make it up on her own 🙂
