21 Islamic Art Crafts, Activities and Printables for Kids

21 ISLAMIC ART CRAFTS, ACTIVITIES & PRINTABLES FOR KIDS

At the moment, all schools and madressas have been closed due to the current situation in the UK. And as jealous as I am that these kids get an extended holiday, I also understand the desire to keep them learning and occupied  so they don’t drive us nuts

Here is a list of 21 Islamic art crafts, activities, and printables for kids that will keep them busy for the next few weeks. Most of them incorporate items you have on hand at home already, but just a few of them may require a sneaky online purchase, and have been chosen as they also teach Islamic values and history too.

21 Islamic Art Crafts, Activities, and Printables for Kids

1.Paper Mache Mosque 

Building a paper mache mosque is perhaps the easiest craft one can do with their kids, but why not get the whole family involved and see if you can build a mega mosque! Any cardboard boxes will work here and old newspapers too.

4. My First Dua book

This is one of my favourites on the list. Using your child’s hands as a template, you can create a simple and easy mini dua book that can keep growing in size, the more duas you add. This can be a great keepsake for when they grow up.

5. Five Pillars of Islam Craft

As most of us bought toilet roll in abundance in the last few weeks, I’m sure you’ll have plenty of spare cardboard rolls lying around! This craft incorporates painting, sellotaping, and a key lesson in the five pillars.

7. 99 Names of Allah Tree

I have always struggled with the 99 names of Allah ever since Madressa days so I love the idea of making it into a tree. You can be as creative as you like with this: ordering a tree decal online, building a 3d model – get those creative juices pumping!

Ummi and Kids produce the most aesthetically pleasing printables that are just waiting to be coloured in and contain an abundance of Islamic etiquette. Examples of some printables that can be downloaded are the manners of eating, ramadan trackers, the alphabet, and more.

18. Sadaqah Box

A good way to incorporate a hands-on activity when teaching the kids about sadaqah and charity. The children can build a mosque of their dreams (depending on how many empty tissue boxes you have!) to then keep in their rooms to collect sadaqah.

19. Stories of Prophets Crafts

Although reading stories about our Prophets is a learning activity in itself, adding a craft to complement it helps to cement the story in your child. Islamic Art For Kids have made a collection of crafts for a few of our Prophets to help inspire you!
