This mandala activity is super easy to put together with whatever you have on hand. Keep reading to find out what was used for these fantastic symmetrical designs.
Hi, everyone! I’m thrilled to be able to guest blog over here at the fantastic Life Over C’s, hosted by the talented Kim Staten!
I’m Angelina and I blog over at The mommy talks. Most of my blog is about my 3 youngest of 8 kids!
Anyone who knows me I love easy prep, easy clean up activities–so that’s mainly what I write about.
I’m so excited to share with you a wonderful art activity we did with my 2 youngest girls and their friends! They absolutely adored it as I’m sure your kids will, too!
Round placemats (or you could cut out big circles from poster board)
Small, loose pieces (See this list for some of our favorites!)
My 2 youngest daughters had some friends over, and everyone wanted to do something artsy, but I hadn’t prepared anything, so I needed an art activity with no prep that I could get out literally in seconds, but that would be creative and pretty.
I remembered that we had done some mandala coloring pages not too long ago, and we all thought they were just so beautiful.
So, I had this sudden inspiration to create our own simple mandalas with these round placemats I had gotten for other activities and decorate them with pretty, loose pieces.
We are also in the middle of a project using washi tape and popsicle sticks, so we added these dressed up popsicle sticks to our loose pieces collection and they were a perfect fit.
Not only did the girls absolutely LOVE this easy art activity, but they came out so beautiful!
They did several each and were very proud of their work.
I was so impressed with how they used symmetry in their own special ways to create something very magnificent out of such simple materials.
