Hajj Lapbook…Updated!

Late posting as usual, masha Allah. I am happy to see so many of you benefit from the lapbook files I posted during Dhul Hijjah, Alhamdulilah!

I finally found a little ( and I mean little) time to post the pics I have of our Tot book. Unfortuately, I was unable to do a lapbook with the older girls, but insha Allah next year and I also hope to have been able to make some new minibooks for it, insha Allah.

This is the main layout of the tot book, as you can see only five items in this lapbook.

This is our Hajj counting pocket

The Hajj Counting cards. Counts numbers 1-10

1  kaba
2  hillocks
stoning pillars
4 animals for dhabh
5 buses to makkah
6 umbrellas for wuquf
7 times around the kaba
8 sleeping bags for muzdalifah
9 muslims in ihram
10 tents in mina

 The file for the Hajj counting: hajj counting

The Dhul Hijjah spelling tabs. You can have your child either use a pencil and trace the letters that spell “Dhul Hijjah” or you can have them just trace with their finger.

Animals for Dhabh pocket

The animals for Dhabh cards. Match the picture cards to their shadows.

I look foward to seeing your Hajj lapbooks insha Allah.

Hajj Bulletin Board



As Always, I am a little late posting this. I thought to go ahead and share and start ideas flowing for the next Hajj insha Allah. Planning ahead is always better,insha Allah.

Our board is not as large as the Du’a board, but a tad smaller. This board only stayed up for the month of Dhul Hijjah and our Du’a board will stay posted up year round to keep them practicing,insha Allah.

Our Bulletin Board was a done a little late in Dhul Hijjah, but the kids did get to benefit and I also plan on using it again next year insha Allah. The kiddos are still young and can always use a refresh course on Hajj,insha Allah.

You can go over to Islamic Bulletin Boards Blog and view the rest of our board and find the files we used over there as well.

Okay, I do have one file of my own to share for this one.

Hajj Lapbook

Subhan Allah! Busy days and Dhul Hijjah around the corner insha Allah. I have not really covered Dhul Hijjah before with the kids other than basics. This year I really wanted to go further into detail.

I have started a tot book (smaller form of lapbook) for the little ones here and plan on making a lapbook with the older children. One problem…….I ran out of colored ink!!!

Right in the middle of printing! I have some goodies to offer, but I will wait a couple more days no later than Friday to post the tot book, its really simple masha Allah so it does not take a long time to make. This was a sort of last minute plan to make one since my house is full of activity every single day allowing me little creative time to myself masha Allah.

If for some reason I am not able to finish the lapbook on time, I will then just post the files here for you all to at least benefit from. I usually like giving a visual for you all to see as an example, but it may not happen masha Allah.

We also started our Bulletin board which was coming along very nicely, but ink problems! I may see if I can change the files to black and white (which I really would not want but due to the lack of time I have free and I really love the color of the files)

Please my dear readers, make du’a that I can get it all finished to help teach my children and share with you insha Allah.

Stay tuned………

Okay, I decided to just add the files insha Allah for you all to use and make your own lapbooks. I will try getting pics posted as soon as I get ink! Insha Allah.

Hajj Fund Project



My older girls decided to make a little project for my husband. They wanted to help him save money to make hajj insha Allah. We had a five gallon water bottle and they add any extra change to it when they find it or when my husband comes home they have him add his change to the bottle as well.

They wanted to decorate the bottle to surprise/encourage my husband.

 They found a box around the house and covered it in black construction paper. Then they cut a hole at the bottom of the box, which will be the top of the bottle.

Next, they drew out some letters that make up “Hajj Fund” and had their younger siblings color. They then took some gold glitter and decorated the box as if it were the kabah, masha Allah.

They did a  nice job, Alhamdulilah!

They were even so creative to include the Kiswa being partially pulled up on the sides. That is what this shows. They drew out the bricks and had the little ones color it in with different shades of brown.

 May Allah make it easy for all the Muslims that want to make the next Hajj, Ameen.
