The use of glue in craft projects always has an almost magical quality with children as seen in the is unique MANDALA. The fact that the white glue is transparent once dry allows for starting good results even when working with younger children.

You will need:
Black paper
White school glue
Colored pencils
Chalk
q-tips

Let’s get started:
Step 1: Have the children draw with white pencils. Introducing straight lines, concentric circles, triangles and diamonds in order to create a mandala.
