The children in Room 1 at St. Anthony's worked in small groups to discuss mandalas. We decided to small group in a quiet hallway where the children could manipulate the sand and other materials to create a sense of peace. They were able to create their own mandalas by using loose parts such as seashells, gems, rocks, and sticks. 

"Mandalas look like circles."-Alex

"They have different designs inside."-Julian

"I'm going to draw a circle in the sand first then put my rocks on. Just going to follow the line."-Areli

"Mrs. Sarah, we could make these outside with leaves and rocks!"-Joshua
