Step-by-Step

STEP 1

COLLECT
Head out on a nature walk and gather some nature: This could be rocks, leaves, sticks flowers, dandelions and pinecones — anything special that is on the ground that catches your eye (don’t pick anyones flowers).

STEP 2

SPACE
Find a space – it could be a patch of grass in your backyard or space at a park. This is your canvas for the mandala. Place one object in the middle and the other objects in a circular pattern around the center. Keep moving out, and go around and around, adding larger circles around the centre until you have completed the mandala.

STEP 3

ARRANGE
Take your time as you place your objects, and rearrange as you need to. There is no right or wrong way to make a nature mandala and have fun!

STEP 4

SUBMIT
Take a picture, and submit online, but leave behind for others to enjoy if possible.
