Outdoor Mandala-Designer Review (Ravensburger)

What It Is

Kids can transform sidewalks into life-sized canvases with the Outdoor Mandala-Designer, a new chalk stencil set. There are four styles to choose from: Animal Fun, Fairy Dreams, Flowers & Butterflies, and Romantic Garden. Each set, sold separately, comes with one mandala stencil, six colored chalks, and instructions. Unfold the 22.5-inch stencil and use the chalk to draw a circle around the stencil. Make a mark next to one of the small arrows on the stencil's outer edge. Pick the pattern with which you want to start your creation and trace it with chalk. Rotate the stencil inside your chalk circle until one of the arrows on the stencil lines up with your chalk mark on the outside of the circle. You can rotate the stencil one, two, or four arrows depending on how many times you want your pattern to appear in your design. Keep tracing the pattern and rotating the stencil until you have filled your circle with patterns. Remove the stencil and color in your artwork.

Is It Fun?

Kids will like drawing big with the Outdoor Mandala-Designer kits. The instructions are pretty easy to follow and result in really cool-looking and really large works of colorful chalk art. This is a fun way to get kids creative and playing outside.

Who It’s For

Outdoor Mandala-Designer is for ages 5 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

Make sure to clean the stencil under running water after use. Once it's dry, fold it up and place it back in the box.
