Are Simple Mandalas Just for Kids?
While simple mandala coloring pages are often used to introduce children to mandalas they can be used by anyone. The elderly or those who have difficulty with fine motor skills may find them easier to work with. They may also allow those with vision problems to participate in coloring (or creating) mandalas without straining to see all the parts.
Simple mandala patterns are also well suited for craft projects and in handcrafts such as quilting or applique. A complex design may be overwhelming in this context. A simple mandala design can be used instead to create a striking piece of art that plays with color and geometric design.
Where Do You Find Simple Mandalas?
You can often find simple mandalas in children’s storybooks or coloring books. These can be used as coloring pages to create colorful and personalized mandalas or used as patterns for adult artwork. Some quilt and applique books also contain simple mandala designs that can be adapted for other projects.
