A Geometrical Family Activity.

Make a mandala.

Make it on paper. Make it in the garden with things found in nature.

For more details, you can read my old blog post.

The Ancient India block, where we create mandalas, is one of my favourite blocks. As they draw a the mandalas, I tell the story of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. The Creator, The Preserver. The Destroyer.

I make sure to add that after destruction comes renewal. Another beginning.

In the mandala, as you repeat the pattern and reach the end of a level, you can move outward or inward to begin again.

A great lesson when we can’t move backward or forward.

“Life is a full circle, widening until it joins the circle motions of the infinite.”
