Mandala Day

"Spider making a mandala"

Our first day at camp, I decided the easiest thing to do was color and decided to have Mandala Day! I found some great tracers and gave the kids a blank circle. Depending on the grade, we talked about mandalas and just let them express themselves.....
Some were pretty intense... even first graders understood and made some really beautiful ones.
I clipped them to the fence to display them and we had a mandala exhibit.

It turned out to be a really nice, relaxing day and the weather was great, too!
Even I made one :-)

Doreen...lots of happy campers I see! They..and the mandalas are gorgeous. It's just something about them that brings a smile to the heart, and insight to the mind.

This is so wonderful. They did such great work. My 3 year old likes to draw some with me. His are interesting and we do some together. I should post his. Thanks for sharing the experience.
