Creative Remix 5-Outdoor Mandala

We come to the 5th art-ivity in my Creative Remix workshop at Roundhouse Centre…Outdoor Mandala.

Originally, we were going to try making one at the park or near a beach but in the end we just did one right outside the Roundhouse.

Here are some of the components of our mandala:

  • hangers
  • mini toy components
  • cut cardboard shapes (rounds and strips)
  • big multicoloured blanket yarns
  • pompoms (we had an abundant supply from a previous  pompom workshop at Roundhouse)
  • giant coloured plastic buttons
  • chenille (craft pipe cleaners)
  • golf tees

-basically all things colourful and wonderful (in great numbers) are a welcome addition
materials

Steps

  1. Determine the size of mandala you are making. It is best you mark the pavement with a chalk to guide the kids.
  2. Group kids and assign component to add onto mandala. Designate which part of circle they are filling.

3. Stop and assess. Do you need more components? Are the kids expanding the circle too much? Is it even still looking like a circle, hahahah. (FYI-This was just a spontaneous design and free flow mandala.)

4. Take group photo and enjoy the group’s outdoor masterpiece.

5. Then of course, everybody helps in tidying up after.

Bear in mind again, these are kids ages 5 to 10 working on an outdoor mandala for the first time. I think they did an amazing job. Bravo, kids!
