We created amazing Mandalas in the garden today, they were so beautiful, and were greatly enjoyed by the children and myself alike, from the gathering of plant material, to the creating of the Mandalas and in true Mandala style, reminding us that it is the journey not the destination that truly matters, the breaking down of the beautiful creations.
Here are our well loved baskets full of plant beauty
Keenan really got into it, as a three year old I thought he would quickly loose interest, but he stayed on for a long time adding on to his creation
Kaleena, who loves these kinds of activities, made first one and then started over and made another
and here are the different stages of the one I made, I got a little carried away with the camera, but I just adore the progression.
And when we were done creating we gathered up the corners of our "canvas"
and created yet another pile of plant material to start all over again.
Do share if you have, or feel inspired to make beautiful plant Mandalas.
And a beautiful sunflower from our plant gathering walk.
A perfect reminder that summer truly is here.
May your day be wonderfully creative:)
