We made this project from Karyn Tripp’s Math Art & Drawing Games for Kids book who is the creator of the amazing Teach Beside Me. This book is filled with 40+ fun art projects that help to build Math skills all while having fun and creating!
We were thrilled to be gifted this book to review and share with our readers.
My daughter and I looked through this book together and came across lots of cool projects that we wanted to try! There are fun and engaging ideas that use Math concepts with fine artists, cultural art, geometric art and even edible math art, which has super fun and yummy activities!
The activities are open-ended and have lots of room for kids to be creative and put their own unique twist on the projects while learning key math concepts. There is also a “math in action” list that gives the math concepts used for each project.
Snowflake Mandala Drawings
After taking some time looking through each chapter, we decided to try making mandala drawings. My daughter had not used a compass before, so it was an interesting challenge for her to learn how to use one and to draw the mandala template.
We used watercolor paper and watercolor pencils for our drawing and decided to turn them into beautiful snowflakes! Watercolor pencils are always fun for kids to explore.
We talked about how to draw mandalas and using symmetry. Mandalas are a fun and relaxing drawing activity, we will definitely be drawing more!
The projects in this book are perfect for kids 8-12 and the directions are easy to follow with clear photos to help kids complete them independently.
Math Art & Drawing Games for Kids has really interesting projects that will keep kids engaged, having fun and learning about key math concepts! My daughter is looking forward to trying out some more awesome activities on her own.
