Symmetry is a fundamental part of geometry, nature and shapes and it helps children recognize patterns and organize the world they see around them. It encourages your little learners to look more closely at shapes and focus on the different parts that they are made up of. So why not help nurture their little mathematical minds and add these Santa Symmetry worksheets to your list of fun and educational Christmas activities.
This pack contains four Santa symmetry sheets with varying difficulties. Two have both sides already drawn and your child will just need to ensure both halves are colored the same (great for younger children) – and two are more advanced and require your child to carefully complete Santa by drawing his missing half.
These symmetry worksheets are super easy to prepare (literally just download and print) and can help your children develop some important early math skills.

What Skills Can Your Children Learn And Practice?
When using these Santa symmetry worksheets, your children will have the chance to practice and develop some important skills such as:
- Geometry and Shape – this symmetry sheet will help your children to understand that objects are made up of different shapes and help them to begin classifying them (e.g. both Santa’s body and belt are made of rectangles and his pompom and eyes are circles)
- Observation – they will have to have good observational skills to ensure they are accurately copying the other half of the picture
- Hand-eye coordination – to be able to understand what they are seeing and get their hands to go where they want them to go
- Pencil Control – they can practice their pencil control and develop hand strength through drawing and coloring
