Was fortunate enough to have been invited by a friend to Make-Your-Ganesha workshop, went along with my boys and we had a great time creating our very own for the first time Ganesha. it turns out the lady who was teaching the class was my ex-collegue ,tell you it's a small world. Kids and adults alike had fun and kudos to the teacher for she does this just out of good will bless her heart. All the while, while teaching us how to make Ganesha she told stories about him and made the class interesting.
So thanks a bunch to my friend for inviting and my ex-colleague for the effort and time in trying to teach kids our culture, hats off ..
So this is how our little Ganesha came home
Step1 : A big blob of wet clay cut into rectangles were distributed to all the kids.
2. Step two made a base for Ganesha and made his cute big round tummy and wrapped around legs.
Step 3: Added head and hands
Step 4: added trunk and ears and few decorations around his neck
step6 : Black eyed peas make excellent eyes, add trunk and his ride the mooshika/rat.
Wishing everyone a very peaceful and a gastronomic Ganesh Chaturdi.
