Here is another simple craft that Insha-Allah has been prepared for the upcoming Maulidur Rasul program at our local mosque.
This is a craft to reinforce the concept that Rasulullah Sallallaahu Alaihi Wasallam is our guiding light.
It is a quicker version of my other stained glass crafts featured here and we made similar ones for last Ramadhaan and Eid.
1. Print the WRONG SIDE template (Page 1) from the attachment below onto a overhead transparency.
The page has two templates. Cut along the outer frame.
2. Cut 1 inch strips out of card stock, I used black. Glue down the strips to the transparency template with the right side facing up to create a frame.
3. Colour the template using PERMANENT MARKERS on the right side up. In Canada, they are commonly known as Sharpie markers. This is just a brand, BiC is another option.
You can use regular markers, however the colours will not be vivid.
Please note that it is important that you colour on the right side facing up. The felt of the markers will scrape off the print if you did in on the wrong side. This is why I flipped the template for printing purpose.
Once the colouring is done, the frame can be attached to a window. You can enjoy it this was.
You can opt to attach a piece of crumpled up kitchen foil to the back of the frame. This gives the frame a more permanent glow. We are Insha-Allah doing this, to allow the children to hang the craft anywhere and not just limited to windows.
I have included a regular page to the template (Page 2). Those who are not keen on the above craft idea, can use this page as a colouring page.
