Fruit Plate Of Love

image

My children and I made these fruit plates a while back – We loved putting these together because they were not only yummy and fun to make, but we made them with LOVE.

Fruit plates are a great way to teach your children about a topic you want them to learn about! While my kids and I put together these plates, we discussed what ‘love’ means to them, and how we can express our love through actions of respect and through words of kindness.

You can make a fruit plate with your children by choosing any theme, such as peace, equality, human rights, etc….Not only is this an activity where your children will learn about a certain concept, but it’s also a great bonding experience!

Have a great day filled with Peace & Love everyone 🙂 © The Muslimah Mommy (2014)

DIY Kaaba Box of Knowledge

image

Since my daughter goes to public school here in Canada, she relies on me to teach her about Islam. I have to be honest here (as always) teaching her anything can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to teaching her about Islam, for I’m still learning about this beautiful religion myself. Therefore, I thought it would be a great idea for us to make this ‘Kaaba Box of Knowledge.’

This ‘Kaaba Box of Knowledge’ is a creative way to teach your children about Islam and it’s simple to make! In the box, you can put ANYTHING that is related to Islam. Here are some examples: Continue reading

99 Names Of Allah Flowers In A Pot – DIY

image

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: Continue reading

DIY Felt Puppets, Dolls, and Prayer Mat

When my 6 year old daughter asked me if I would help her make a doll and prayer mat, I instantly agreed. I remember being a little girl and wanting to make a doll myself; for there is something to be said about the sentiment of homemade dolls. As I was stitching my daughter’s doll, she was anxiously standing by my side in anticipation; little did she know, I was just as excited!

I decided to make the dolls out of felt sheets that I found for $0.40 each, making them cost effective and forgiving if I were to make a mistake during the process. For the detailing, I used some fabric from an old dress I had, and some of my daughter’s hair clips. If left unstuffed with the bottom unstitched, these dolls can serve as puppets that slip onto your hands. To turn the puppets into dolls, simply stuff them and stitch the bottom – I just used some left over felt scraps to stuff the dolls. I left the dolls faceless, but you can add a face by either using buttons, or drawing the face on with a marker. In the end, both my kids and I were pleased with the results.

Here are the pictures of our doll making process Continue reading
