Woman making a kolam in south India: "Especially during the harvest season, you'll see many women making kolams outside their homes in the morning. Kolams are beautiful patterns made from rice flour. Besides for decoration purposes it was a way to feed birds and critters. A way to honor that all life is sacred and a tribute to harmonious co-existence."
I hope this post will get you itching to try some sand art with your children. This has got to be my all time favourite activity so far! Rangoli inspired sand art was such a great avenue to explore transitory and collaborative art and for the children to experiment and develop confidence in their own artistic abilities. Take a peek...I think you'll love, love, love!
