Hello My name is Mrs Tea. I used to be a teacher and am here to help with today's activities for your children. We are going to make some mandalas, you might not know what these are. Mandalas are circular often geometric patterns that you can create with anything around you. They come from a place of calm, helping children focus and understand symmetry and patterns, they can use these to count and even before that gathering things to use is a fun activity. This can be done outdoors or if you don't have access then you can do this with household items from your kitchen or pens and pencils. Use the interests of your child, such as lego, cars, trucks, even small soft toys, you could use a doll as the centre piece and items of their clothing to put around. Ideas are endless. Don't forget to take photos and post them to our gallery! Use the hashtags so we can see them!
Making a Mandala
Each mandala is specific to the person who creates it. Collect enough things that you can make a pattern with a centerpiece and spokes of a wheel to create a pattern.
