I love how you make simple things, so fabulous Kate. x
Thankfully, Miss Possum has been an amazing drawer from 1.5 years (I’m not kidding, she spent hours on that magnadoodle toy). She could draw shapes by age two but I love the idea of using shapes to be be creative, to create your own mandala designs and to use vibrant colours like your children did.

Thank you so much for posting this! I bought a mandala coloring book for my kids on vacation and they loved it … now I am excited to print these out and see what they create on their own. Thanks again for sharing!
These are terrific Kate. A brilliant prompt that still allows kids to put their own stamp on it and make it their own.
How fun! We’d love this activity. Will have to print the document and give it a try. Thank you :D
