Sand Mandala

We found a way to use all that sand the kids and I had fun coloring earlier this year. We made Mandalas.

We went to the MIA this summer and had a great time. We saw this amazing Mandala and I gave it a try with my kids. We used white glue on a board. It takes a lot of dry time in between colors but it is a fun project.

This image is from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. The website has an amazing explanation of the Yamantaka Mandala. It is an amazing piece. It would be an excellent resource if you were to teach a lesson on Mandalas.
