Creative activities your kids can do for this Ganesh Chaturthi

1) Make Pandal Decorations

One of the best ways to get your kids involved in the festivities is by involving them in the decoration process. They can make paper streamers, garlands, or even paint and decorate clay pots. Let them be a part of making the pandal look beautiful.

What do you need:

- Paper (colored or white)

- Scissors

- Glue

- Paint (optional)

- Clay pots (optional)

How to make it?

If you want to make paper streamers:

  1. Start by cutting the paper into long strips.
  2. Once you have the strips, fold them accordion style.
  3. Once all the folds are in place, glue both ends of the strip together to form a loop.
  4. Hang the finished streamers on the pandal or around your house.

If you want to make garlands: Cut the paper into strips for garlands, and then tie each strip into a knot. Once all the strips are knotted, connect them to form a garland. You can add beads or sequins between the knots for extra decoration.

2) Clay Idol of Ganesha

If your kids are a bit older and want to try something more challenging, making an idol of Ganesha out of clay is a great option. It will be a fun activity for the whole family, and you can even use the idol as decoration in your home after the festival.

3) Make Ganesha drawings

This is a fun activity for kids where they can learn to make Ganesha drawings.

You will need:

- Paper

- Pencil

- Eraser

- Colored pencils or markers (optional)

How to make it?

Start by drawing a large oval in the center of the paper. This will be Ganesha's head. Above the oval, draw two smaller ovals for his ears. Next, draw a curved line for his trunk and add two small circles at the end for his hands. Finally, add some details like his eyes, nose, and mouth. You can also color your drawing with pencils or markers.

4) Make a Ganesha mask

This easy craft activity lets children have fun making their own Ganesha masks. They can use their masks during festivals or just for dress-up play.

You will need:

- Paper plate

- Scissors

- Tape or glue

- Markers or crayons (optional)

- String (optional)

How to make it?

  1. Start by cutting out the center of the paper plate to create a hole for your face.
  2. Next, decorate your mask with markers or crayons. You can add designs, colors, and patterns to make your mask unique.
  3. Once you've finished decorating, cut two small holes on either side of the mask. These will be for the string so that you can wear the mask.
  4. Finally, tie the string through the holes and adjust it to fit snugly around your head.
And there you have it! Your very own Ganesha mask. Now go out and enjoy the festive celebrations!
