Ganesh Chaturthi Crafts for kids
Starting with Sulbha’s and her creative boy’s Ganesh Chaturthi crafts in her own words.
Ganpati is also known as vighnaharta, and staying in Maharashtra we have a strong and emotional connection with the 10day long festival celebrated. People bring Ganpati for one and half days, 3 days, 5 days, 7 days and 10 days. Ganpati is offered Modak or ladoo as prasad
We bought Ganpati home last year and my then 4 years old were quite happy and excited. I think kids think Ganesha as their friend and resonate with the trunk God. This time we bought Ganesha home for one and half days but before Ganesha came home to bless us all …kids created some art and craft
DIY Ganesh or Ganpati made using Play dough
