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.

Here is what one mum said: “FZ made this Family Treaty today after we discussed how Imam Hassan as had to make a peace treaty with Mu’awiya, and how Mu’awiya did not honour any of the promises made on the treaty.
She wanted to make a Mithwani Family Treaty with our own pledges and promises. She drew a picture of herself and Imam Hassan as holding hands, and she designed his colourful prayer cap and robe!”

With the wafat of Lady Khadija coming up, here are some idea sent in that perhaps you could use:
- “We are having purple day two days before wafat/shahadat to get to know Sayyida Khadija. Why purple? Because purple is the colour of royalty. Girls are going to be given a letter from her name to write a sentence about what they know of her, and eventually form an acrostic poem for display!”
- “We cut out and put two big crowns on a wall. We then gave cut out gem shaped cards to the girls and asked them to write out an act of Khadija-ness on them, then stick it on the crown. Every princess needs a crown AND a wand (and Lady Khadija is Ameera-tul-Quraish), so as favours we gave them a rainbow sherbet stick with a star on top saying “Illuminating Khadija-ness”. The girls loved it!”
- Here is a great way to emulate how Bibi Khadija helped with all that she had.
As it is Imam Jaffer Sadiq’s wafat today, I thought this might be a good opportunity to share an amazing resource that’s out there – useful for both parents and teachers alike.
You know how we’re always looking for craft activities to go with certain lessons/days like today? And we usually have to end up making them from scratch? Well, no more! Here is a website that is compiling activities that amazing creative people have thought of and carried out, which gives step-by-step instructions, downloadable templates and photographs of what the finished product should look like. Their aim is to have a one-stop shop where people around the world both contribute their ideas and utilise other people’s ideas, making learning fun and educational for our children, while hassle-free for us.
For today’s wafat, I found this: http://www.madressa.net/arts-and-crafts/personalities/ahlul-bayt/198-make-a-zarih. Make the 6th Imam’s Zarih with your children and use that opportunity to discuss the hadith that you choose to decorate the Zarih with, and also a little about his great life.
P.S. Do you have any other ideas for a craft activity? Do share on this post! I also know that the Creative Resources are looking for more contributions so please e-mail your activities through to firstname.lastname@example.org. The more people that contribute, the bigger the database to choose activities from!
