A mandala is a circular structure with radial symmetry, that is, the design radiates symmetrically from the centre. Flowers, trees, rings, sun etc. all are some sort of mandalas. They are used to depict fullness, totality, and infinity, and they can help us realise what exists beyond our own world. Explore these three unique mandala art activities with your kids? Read below to know more.
Back and forth mandala drawings
In this type of mandala, you can collaborate with your kids to create a radially symmetrical artwork using markers, pens, pencils, crayons or any other drawing tools you deem fit.
Flower mandala suncatchers
Didn’t we tell you that almost every other occurrence in nature resembles a mandala? Well, then why not use flowers to make one? All you need is a paper plate, contact paper (an adhesive-backed paper or paper-like product, used to line shelves, decorate surfaces, etc.) and flowers for a fun flower mandala.
Sticker mandala art
Mandala art for children is made much more enjoyable and simple with the help of stationery store stickers. You can use them on various coloured construction paper circles cut into circles, and you can even mix the sticker art with details on some of the mandala artworks. This would be an excellent art invitation, an easy transition art activity, a mixed-age art project, or a travel art activity.
