Mandala with beans

One of my favorite things to make is mandalas.  A series of concentric circles that can be made with anything: drawing, watercolor, paint, draw in the sand, use rocks, shells, flower petals, seeds.  In Sanskrit the word mandala means circle and it represents the never ending cycle of life and that everything is connected.  They are used for meditation and to me they are very meditative.  When I am on the road I draw them using a small portable watercolor kit.  It helps me pass time without feeling out of place.

If you want to make one but you are too afraid, or think you are not creative…well here you can make one with beans from your kitchen.
