The 336 piece Diwali, Festival of Lights and Masquerader 2021 are ideal for family time, offering old school fun across generations, without the use of technology.

 GCA wants each child to recognize their own cultural traditions in the festivals we have chosen to represent. We hope these images will assist in the process of normalizing inclusion in our children and will encourage an appreciation for and an understanding of the beautiful differences of the various cultures of Guyana.

 Each box of GCA Cultural Puzzles will include a fly-sheet with an explanation of the Festival chosen.

 Learn and play.
