Lotus Flower Mandala Puzzle
This beautiful mandala puzzle is made up of 30 pieces.
It is made from sustainable pine and has had many hours of hand sanding to finish the small awkward shaped pieces.
It is approximately 20cm x 20cm and 2cm thick.
There are 3 variations of this puzzle available.
1. Raw wood which has been lightly sanded.
Sanding and finishing is a wonderful project for the kids. Let them sand to their hearts content and then paint and/or decorate, allowing them to become a part of the toy making process. They can also be left as is but I recommend waxing or oiling it 1-2 times a year to help prevent the wood from splitting.
2. Well sanded and sealed with beeswax balm.
Beeswax balm lends a wonderful texture and smell to the toys which will aid in enriching play time.
3. Painted and sealed with Tung oil.
One side of this puzzle will be painted with water colour paint and sealed with Tung oil. The other side will remain natural so that the wood grain can be used to help solve the puzzle (if needed). Tung oil is a natural product that has been traditionally used to seal items such as cutting boards. Once cured it adds a lovely shine to the toy and really helps to lock in the colour resulting in less paint rubbing off. Curing can take 1-2 weeks depending on the weather.
**Please note these are handmade and therefore no two items are exactly the same. There may be slight variations in the shape of the pieces. And variations in the grain of the wood.
Recommended for children aged 3+ who have developed past the 'mouthing' stage. Please use under supervision.
This item is handmade to order. Please see the banner on the homepage for current wait times. The painted and sealed with Tung oil option will take longer to make due to the curing time of the Tung oil.
