The concept of space is often an exciting concept for children. Rockets blast off into space, aliens may visit Earth, and it is fun to imagine what it would be like to be weightless.
Open with a discussion about the quiet that actually exists in space. Allow children to experience that peace while exploring this mandala.
Remind children that this is about patience and enjoying the process. It is ok if they color outside the lines! Mandalas are excellent to use at the end of yoga class or to have as coloring sheets in class.
This mandala is a calming component to our Journey to Space lesson plan.
