For this craft, all you need is a shoebox, some stars, a moon, angels, a Quran and a Musallah – oh yea, and don’t forget the string!
This is a great way to get children to create a scene and therefore make very visual the fact that angels descend on us from the heavens during this night, and also that the Quran came down on this night. It can link in perfectly with a discussion on Sura Qadr!
Here is one from Islam from the Start:
“Simple Angel craft – draw around child’s hand for wings – if large group can make template for angel outline and circle head. – children can decorate with glitter – attach to a tissue roll to make it stand – form a halo using a pipe cleaner and stick onto the tissue roll to float over head.
Use it as a visual to talk about the angel Jibrael bringing down the Qur’an to Prophet Muhammad (saw) on the night of Qadr. You can also make a Quran stand using two cardboard strips, cut halfway through both to slot together. Make a small book by folding cardboard and covering with foil to symbolise the Quran.
Display together on a black cloth as a visual reminder of the night of Qadr and use it as a talking point.”
Remember the Laylatul Qadr Box idea from last year? If not, here is the link: https://buzzideazz.com/laylatul-qadr-shoe-box/
Here is another idea – a Laylatul Qadr to-do list – with templates and all! Check it out on: http://madressa.net/index.php/arts-and-crafts/islamic-months/ramadhan/683-laylatul-qadr-to-do-list
Will make the children have a focused plan on what to achieve during the important nights!
