I think Ironic Echo or Meaningful Echo would cover this, even though they're primarily about dialogue, not physical action. Also counts as Book-Ends if the two scenes are at the beginning and end of a story arc.

Don't use the echo tropes here, they are strictly for dialog. Mirroring visuals go under Recurring Camera Shot.

^ That's very different from what the OP is looking for- continuity nod is all about "Yep, that's still a thing that happened". Say, a superhero has go to The Alcatraz to interrogate a supervillain held there, and you can spot season two's Big Bad freaking out in the background when the hero passes by their cell.

Recurring Camera Shot would cover examples in a visual medium, but what about a recurring action that isn't dialogue and isn't in a visual medium?

Maybe there's a flashback trope that covers the camera starting with the battle and interspersing matching cuts of the child-play? (one search later) What I'm thinking of is Happy Flashback. It might or might not be what you're looking for.
