This week we explore mandalas and delve into a little "outside of the box" creative thinking. Check out the following video and instruction sheet below for some inspiring ideas. Of course, with Halloween on our doorstep I highly recommend pumpkin mandalas like the one I made for this post (see below). Kids are focused while creating their masterpieces, and, of course, they'll have a special keepsake to use as a meditation tool beyond your session. I find that when kids create their own tools, they are more likely to use them again and again.
