OUTDOOR LEARNING

Nature Mandalas

 

Last week in Forest School in school, the children created their own nature mandalas. They thought it would be a great activity for you to try and home too. Please send in pictures of your amazing creations. Remember to only collect natural things that there are plenty of and ask if you are taking petals from a flower. Wash your hands when you finish. 

 

  • Mandala. A mandala is a geometric shape that means “circle” in Sanskrit. It is a common design among many different cultures and often appears as the sun, moon, and earth. In Hinduism and Buddhism, a mandala is a symbol representing the universe and life. The circular design is meant to express the concept that everything is connected in life. 
  • Nature mandala. Similar to a mandala symbol, a nature mandala is also an “integrated structure organised around a unifying centre.” It is a circular and non-permanent symbol using patterns to represent the circle of life. They are made with organic materials found in nature. It is a nature-based activity that allows children to observe patterns and cycles found in nature, which will help them transition from one season to the next.
