This guy was made from styrofoam egg carton and pipe cleaners! How easy is that?

Allah Created Spiders, Alhamdulilah!

Bees & Bee Hive Craft

What’s Spring without Bees and a bee hive? We couldn’t forget about bees!


Bees & Hive

Here is our bee we made out of a baby food jar lid! We simply painted it black and glued yellow felt strips on it and glued white felt wings to the back.

Another bee and our hive.

We made our hive from newspaper dipped in glue (paper mache’) we used a gallon milk jug as our model to cover with newspaper. we covered it half way,let it dry then wedged it out. We stuffed the top part with crumbled, balled up newspaper to fit our formation we were looking for. Then we covered it with more glued newspaper strips.

Bees & Hive We added the bees to the hive with pipe cleaners

Allah created Bees, Alhamdulilah!

Ladybug craft


Ladybugs are most kids favorites right? We made our own lady bug crafts that were so much fun!


These little cuties were made out of plastic bottle lids & juice lids!

We added pipe cleaners for legs and antennae. We painted the bottle caps red and added black polka dots


 Here is our itty bitty made from a water bottle lid

This is our bigger one made from a juice bottle lid.

Allah created Ladybugs, Alhamdulilah~

Dragonfly Craft

The next of our crafts!

We made a popsicle dragonfly!



We painted the popsicle sticks. used hot glue ( I did this part) for the wings which were used from our same cookie packaging we used for our mosquito craft.




They all turned out so nice, masha Allah

Again, another easy, simple and enjoyable craft to do with the kids.

Allah created Dragonflies, Alhamdulilah~

Craft Time for your family yet?

Butterfly & Chrysalis Craft

We had to make a few butterfly crafts this year since we raised butterflies. While the kids waited for their caterpillars to turn into Chrysalides we were busy making our own!

This craft is one to especially do if you are raising butterflies or have raised them insha Allah.

The kids really had a wondreful time watching the changes of their caterpillars into butterflies so I took advantage of the moment and went with it.

Butterfly & Chrysalis

Our felt butterflies on a popsicle stick!


Here comes the fun part!

The butteflies in a toilet paper chrysalis! We painted the toilet paper rolls green (same as our painted lady chrysalis) and added some gold beads. we saw some golden specks on the chysalides so we added those to make them more realistic.


Fold your felt butterfly wings in and place it in the toilet paper roll.


Here is where we got our idea for this craft: Butterfly Activities

The only change we did was using felt instead of paper. My kids wanted to play with the butterflies and I knew if I let them use paper they would be tore up quickly and I would have crying kids in my house. I have avoided that by using felt,masha Allah.

Allah created Butterflies, Alhamdulilah!

Go and have some fun with your little ones now! insha Allah
