Your child 3-5 years

Mandalas, your toddler will love that!


In Sanskrit, mandala means "circles". Their geometric shapes and their sacredness fascinates your little one. In addition, they are so pretty when you color them ... To make your own or digging ready to color.

Make yourself a mandala

  • "It's mom who does ..." because you need a compass and it's not your toddler who will handle it!
  • On a piece of Canson paper, draw a large circle and, inside, several other circles.
  • Create geometric shapes by hand or compass. Dial a few rosettes, and voila!
  • Show your child the regularity of shapes. Now he can color the yellow circle, the green circle, then the blue ...
