How to make a mandala?

You must have seen a mandala at some point and be struck by the beauty of its design. A mandala is a circular design originating in India, which means "sacred circle" or a group of shapes around a center.

Creating them is a very relaxing activity for children and adults, so let's release the stress and focus on the creative process.

You will find different ways to make children's mandalas using a variety of materials, such as sand painting, using paints on glass for stained glass mandalas, the use of watercolors.

We will advise you in the process of making a mandala using wooden pieces of the brand Grapat.

These are small pieces of wood of different colors, sizes and shapes , perfect for creating those beautiful round patterns.

When creating mandalas, children can intuitively work on g geometric shapes to achieve circular designs.

The shape of the pieces helps to create this type of design, as usually we will place a central piece and we will create concentric rings created by more pieces around this center.

When we leave the center, we can wonder if we skipped a segment, or if we interspersed two different types of segments to form a series or pattern, which would also allow us to reason logically.

It is a creative process that encourages the use of imagination and creativity.

We are also working on fine motor skills and hand-eye control and spatial orientation.

Mandalas can be done on the floor, on a table, or a circular base can be used to delineate space.
