Mandala Magic

mandala7An integrative hands-on art activity where participants create mandalas from colored rice. Mandala Magic was one of the most popular site activities at the International Children’s Festival in St Albert (view the photo album). This 40-50 minute workshop allows children to hone their artistic ability while constructing mandalas out of colored rice. In addition, numerous applications of the Alberta Program of Studies are made including:

  • social studies (global mandalas, world cultures and languages)
  • science (awareness of natural mandalas)
  • math (patterning, repetition, shapes, geometry)
  • physical education (fine and gross motor-skills, working well together in groups)
