DIY Puzzles with Islamic Themes

Posted:
I LOVE this idea that a mum sent! Check it out:

“Salaam, wanted to share a simple activity you can do with any image. Since it was the Prophet’s birthday, we printed images relating to the prophet (his name and masjid).

Then you take Popsicle sticks (as many as takes to cover photo) and glue with mod poj glue, then put image on top and add another layer of mod poj glue.

Be generous as it dries clear like you see in picture. Then take a box cutter and cut picture between Popsicle sticks and voila you have a DIY puzzle for kids!

You can do any image like Kaaba for Eid ul Adha or Imam Hussein’s shrine on his birthday, etc. I’m planning on taking these to mosque also to keep the kids busy.”

Islamic Story Boxes

Posted:

You may have heard of Story Boxes – where boxes are converted into story telling opportunities with the right props and decor.

Here are some examples of Islamic Story Boxes sent in by a mum!

One to note for today in particular is the one on Imam Ali (as) – Khushali Mubarak to all of you, btw! There’s also one on Hadith-ul-Kisa, the narration of Thaqalayn at the Prophet’s death and the House of Grief of Bibi Fatima (as) after the Prophet died.

What a great way to convert plain boxes into valuable and fun teaching moments!

Wafat of Bibi Fatima (as) - Craft

Posted:

Here’s another craft idea on the wafat of Lady Fatima (as) sent in by a mum…

1- Children Painted a Poster boards brown and red. We cut them in half to look like a door. ( this was toddler height). We also cut the red into flames.

2- We glued the fire onto the door and shared the horrific tragedy that fell on Bibi Fatema and Baby Mohsin AS.

3- We also learned the different titles of Bibi Fatema and made a flower out of the petals. The petals on the front had the title and when you lift it the meaning of the title and how it applied to Bibi Fatema AS.

4- for the wall in our house we made a bigger door and a bigger flower. For the flowers stem we used it as a time line to depict all the important events in her life.

 

Ahlul Kisa Activity

Posted:

Alhamd have seen some really great interactive ideas for madressa/classes which I thought I’d share…

  • Take this one for example! Velcro detachable cards were made and the children took turns to stick them on. Was a great talking point for the Ahlul Kisa. Can be adapted for older children with more info, etc.

  • Here is another way to depict the family visually – through a family tree:

Eid Tree - Decoration Ideas!

Posted:

Following on from the Eid Tree idea shared last week, now we need to get thinking on how to decorate it!

We are trying to gather all the ideas (both decoration-wise and just general uses for the Eid tree) here on this Pinterest board – join us! If you come across anything that you think might be good, pls feel free to share too!

Lastly, why not get some mums and kids over to have a decoration making session? Home-made decorations are so charming and the children will love seeing their handiwork up there. It also makes it easier when done together, doesn’t it?!

If you’re in the London area, join us for ours! It will be at the Children’s Islamic Library in Stanmore next Wednesday at 2pm.

Happy decorating 🙂
