Ganesh Chaturthi is a round the corner.We pay our respects to Lord Ganesha,the remover of all obstacles.It is a time to thank Bappa for all his blessings.I feel blessed having visited Siddhivinayak temple, Lalbaug cha Raja and Dagdu sheth Ganpati during this 10 day long festival several times.I have always been in awe of the sculptors.As we miss the festival back home,we decided to bring Bappa home.This is a DIY: How to make eco-friendly Ganapati Idol at home in our small capacity.
Need for Eco-friendly ways
We always wanted Eco friendly Ganpati whenever we decided to do the sthapna.Our idol should not harm the environment. After all,God is kind enough to give us this beautiful world and its high time we take care of it.

Playdough from food colors
You can also use this dough to make different structures like playdough.This can be a play activity for toddlers.However,ensure parent supervision always with play dough.
Below is a recipe of dough for our eco-friendly Ganesha.
All ingredients are commonly available at home.We have used edible food colors and cake rainbow sprinkles along with little thread.Last year we made the idol using cream of tartar.Click here to see how to do it.However,it may not be in pantry of all readers.Hence,we are making this idol using vinegar and flour this time.
