Lyfta mandala collaboration 2024
We've created something wonderful together!

During January and February 2024, thousands of children took part in our Lyfta live lessons and collaborative art project - #LyftaMandalaCollab. In celebration of International LEGO Day, we invited schools and learners everywhere to explore Lyfta storyworld "Building Imagination" from China, to meet Wei Wei; the only female LEGO Certified Professional in the world as she helps unleash the creativity of 2,000 children to build a giant LEGO mandala.Inspired by what they had seen, students created their own mandala designs, made from LEGO and other materials, to form part of a collaborative mandala design; a collective expression of creativity!

We were amazed by the quality and creativity of all the entries we received and are delighted to share the collaborative design for you to explore. Just click and zoom in to locate your own design and explore designs from other learners and other schools. We hope you’ll agree, we really have made something beautiful together!
