Animal Wednesday / Frogs

One of the 7 designs I made for the school project.
It was fun and the kids enjoyed it. I was surprised by their results.
I will show you in a post later because I am still waiting for some pictures others took.

The theme was "What comes out of an egg"?
Well frogs do.
All the egg mandala's have a kind of spring feeling.
Soon we will be surrounded by new life. 
In my garden no frogs are there to be seen yet.
I know when I see them that spring has arrived.
I can't wait........

Happy Animal Wednesday!


  1. this is brilliant marianne, you show every part of the life cycle, in the most beautifully educational way.

  2. I ♥ this Mandala! Love Froggies! (And Tadpoles!) This HAD to be a HUGE hit at Felix's Schule!
    I can't wait to see the other Mandalas and hear what the students thought!
