Reversed Text for Mirror Play

We’re back with the next installment of our toddler series, a collaborative series of posts between myself and the fabulous Kristan of Munchkin and Bean. This week we are seeing things through our toddlers’ point of view with the aid of mirror play.

I made these mirror cards for SunnyGirl, you can feel free to download your own copy from the text link below. To use mirror cards, any old mirror will do, however we used our DIY mirror box which also happens to be great for teaching symmetry and other early math concepts.

Since her older brother has been busy learning all about insects and arachnids, I got SunnyGirl in on the fun by making her some insect mirror cards.

If insects and numbers aren’t what you need, I suggest using PicMonkey to easily make your own. PicMonkey is a free service you can use to design or edit your images online, I use it quite frequently and highly recommend it.
To make mirror cards in PicMonkey, just go to their website, select “design,” pick out your font, type in some text and then click the reverse button (circled in the picture below).

Once you click that button, viola! Your text is reversed, just print it out and hold it up to a mirror to read it.

This would be really fun to do with your toddler’s name!

Now be sure to hop on over to Munchkin and Bean to see their sensory play mirror art!

  1. THANKS for the PicMonkey tip! Brilliant! I recently shared a mirror activity using my son’s spelling list and I had such a *hard* time trying to write the letters backwards! ha!
