Making a Mandala Children's Activity

Mandalas are circular designs and have a long history in various religion. We have found that they are beautifully mindful to create from a garden, and a very simple but enjoyable activity. Garden mandalas can be made from anything from flowers, to leaves, to pinecones - the limit is only your imagination!  Join us as we show you how to create your own.

This video is part of our Gardening with Children activities. We at Scotland’s Gardens Scheme love to garden, and we also love to share our gardens and gardening with others. We especially want to encourage future gardeners. Our activities are intended to give parents and carers ideas for gardening projects.

Please do supervise children during all activities. And do visit our website for more ‘gardening with children’ ideas, including how-to videos and project worksheets.

You can also download an activity sheet for making a mandala.

And for a bit of fun, you can watch here as we create our rainbow mandala in fast motion!
