As salaamu ‘alaikum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh. My daughter tears up her ‘Arabic vocab books beyond repair, so we have to buy them over and over again. I decided to make her one instead this time. I went to a local bookstore and purchased some craft materials. I plan to use:
- foam paper
- hole puncher
- fabric & glitter glue
- rub on designs
- press on diamond stars & studs
- wired/beaded letters
- cut outs & tangible items around the house
In Shaa Allaah I will punch wholes in the foam paper and ties bows with silk ribbons to bind the book. I plan to use real materials (such as buttons) and cut out pics (like fruits, trees, etc) to decorate it. I may use stickers to label each item, not sure.
Perhaps she’ll think twice before ripping this book up if I allow her to help me make it. Maybe she can glue something together. Anyway, this is just a thought on how we can help our children increase their ‘Arabic vocabulary in a fun, interactive way. I’ll send in a photo of the book when I am done, bi idhnillaah.
If you’ve done something like this already I’d love to see a photo.
