Concepts of Mathematical Symmetry
Children can easily learn concepts of mathematical symmetry with paper folding techniques while creating hand crafted snow flower treasures for holidays.
Before the invention of the microscope, no one knew what the snowflake, nature's icy beauty, actually looked like. The assumption by scientists and regular folk alike was that the fluffy ice crystals which cover the land in a cold blanket were tiny ice flowers sent from the heavens.

Snowflake decorations are everywhere from stores to holiday gift baskets, Craft & Hobby Supplies and folk art to pottery and colorful fabrics. During the holidays, homes, offices businesses and hotels all have one thing in common, snowflake displays in windows, hanging from the ceilings. Ceramic tiles are often stamped with designs. Snow flower decorations are also woven into rugs and carpets of hotel lobbies and corporate office cubicles and other locations where you can to further the education of a budding young scientist.
Enlarged drawings of designs illustrated by early arctic explorers. When microscopes were first invented, explorers of arctic and cold, snowy regions made use of the magnification to view the tiny crystals. Researchers would withstand hours of freezing temperatures to study the various shapes of crystals in microscopes and illustrate the findings on paper in log books.
