We decided to have some fun "art classes by Mommy" over the weekend. The kids were excited as I tried to make it seem like an "official" class they were taking. Our first experiment was with Madala Pages. A definition of Mandala Art is found HERE.
Working on these type of art pages is said to help you relax - so maybe try it for a much needed "Quiet Time". It also helps with concentration.
We simply googled Mandala pages and downloaded several different free pages available from a few different sites.
Some sites we found with fun patterns are below:
This is a great tool for teaching patterns and color schemes. We thought this was a great forum for colorful markers.
The kids took to it right away and created some very interesting pieces of art.
I think it would be fun to print the same one off for each child and see how different they turned out.
