I know that when you balance chemical equations, you have to have the same amount on each side of the equations. I think it is hard to do this visually unless you know how the substances recombine to form the new product. If it is just a matter of reminding the child that, let's say, the same number of oygen molecules need to be on each side of the equation, then you could just have a different colored paper or whatever be representative of each different molecule/element and make sure that all are used up on the product side of the equation.
