Ganesha Stand Up Card

This art activity was created to accompany our lesson on "I is for Intelligence." In class the children receive pre-cut pieces and a stand up card. They are then asked to assemble the pieces to make an image of Lord Ganesha. The end result is a colorful stand-up picture which the kids can place on their altar and enjoy!
