The Prophet's Mosque Stamp Craft
This Mosque stamp activity will make learning about the Prophet and Medina fun and memorable for kids as they can make endless patterns, greeting cards and wall art to share.
For those of us who have been fortunate enough to feel the sweet breeze of Medina and visit the Mosque of the Prophet this activity will be a great way to spark that longing in your children.
"Certainly you have in the Messenger of Allah an excellent exemplar for him who hopes in Allah and the latter day and remembers Allah much." Quran 33:21
What you will need
Gold/Yellow and Teal/Green acrylic paint (with paint tray and brush if you want to be tidy)
Pen or pencil
Benefits of this activity
Hand and eye coordination - watching and doing and coordinating these actions.
Fine motor skills - strengthening little muscles.
Introduce elements of the Seerah.
Draw dome and minaret separately on a piece of paper. You could draw this freehand or use a photo like the one below as a reference (simply print it, cut around it and trace around onto the foam).
Cut the foam dome and minaret shapes out. Using a pen or pencil draw details and patterns (apply the right amount of pressure so it makes enough of an impression without piercing the foam).
Add glue to the plain side of the foam and stick it onto the cardboard.
Spread the paint evenly onto the foam dome and minaret shapes. We've used glitter paint but you can just normal acrylic paint and then sprinkle glitter once you have imprinted onto your sheet of paper.
