Week Seven: August 18th – Nature Walk and Mandala
Have you ever collected rocks, shells, acorns, leaves or other natural tokens? What do you do with them when you get home? Try creating a nature mandala or collage! This simple activity combines fresh air with creative exploration. The goodies you save from your nature walk or trip to the beach will be your art supplies. Bring along a basket or bag to collect your tokens – whatever captures your children’s attention. When you return home you and your kids can use the items to create a design. Use this time to reflect on your day. You could even use some paint to decorate the items for display. Check out Pinterest for some inspiration! Share your mandala with us! We want to see your creation.
