Ramadan has reached us all, and it feels wonderful. Alhamdulilah!
Trying to keep your fasting teens or even little ones busy? I haven’t forgotten that although my girls are growing up, I realize they still like to craft and play. I keep their minds young so to speak! *smile*
The first days of fasting are always the hardest for my older girls. This year I am trying a little something different. I want them to do their studies the first part of the day, insha Allah since this is the time where their energy is the highest and they can stay focused more.
The last half of the day, they have had their own crafts to do to keep them busy and less focussed on being hungry or counting down the hours,minutes and seconds to break their fast.
These passed first few days of Ramadan they have been working on Muslim Yarn Dolls. I thought what a cute idea, and had them have a go at it!
They turned out to be so adorable. The girls made one for each member of our family.
These were also quite easy and inexpensive to make, masha Allah.
Here is what they look like undecorated

Here are the 3 little kids, khimars, kufis and all! masha Allah

Like I said this was a simple project, but I say in our instance the big girls did this themselves. We used a hot glue gun on the felt clothes although if you would like to include little ones in this project it might be better to use fabric glue.
Here is the site where I found the idea for this craft: Yarn Dolls
