Inspired Play Activity (September 2018)
Mandala & Summer Memories
This time, the goal of the Inspired Play Activity was to help children in making a connection between their experiences during the summer break and the design of mandala.
Therefore, children decorated their own mandalas with things they collected: seashells from the seashore, dry bug shells to express their love for insects, twigs, leaves, and pebbles from the woods, beads from a local summer festival, and even sand from the beach.
The connection between what they made and the memories related was strong and they were free to decorate their mandala using any pattern they liked: zig-zag, lines, spiral, random.
They had to use their imagination in order to give a physical shape to their summer memories and the result was unique.
