Little children like stuffed animals. An idea with a little elephant (like Shri Ganesha) is – it could be a mascot. The little elephant could express perfectness. To show the children how to behave or in some cases how not to behave (if we have a casualty of a child who is doing something else than expected). We could react to the elephant: “Oh, no, little elephant what are you doing? You have to sit with hands open….
Like Shri Mataji suggested once to do it with a doll. So, the child will not feel offended in the group.
It is not necessary that the toy-elephant should be bought. It actually wouldn’t take that long and could be done by almost any age (a sewing machine would help).
