I wanted to teach my daughter the 99 names of Allah in a fun and creative way, and turning this learning activity into a crafting session was definitely fun! My daughter and I decided to go for a flower in the pot because A. She loves plants and B. It was easy and quick and C. Because this way she can take out a flower, learn the names, put it back into the flower pot, and then choose another flower! Win – Win – Win!
We plan on choosing a flower from the pot and learning the names and the meaning of the names from one petal each week. Since there are about 4-5 names on each petal, this seems like a realistic approach.
Here’s how we put together our 99 Names of Allah Flower Pot:
– Materials needed: 99 Names of Allah, construction paper, glue, tape, scissors, cardboard box (or cereal box), yogourt container. Optional: stickers, markers, crayons.
-Age: this craft is ideal for school aged children that are able to cut and glue paper.
-Duration: up to an hour depending on your child.
