Ayyam-i-Ha craft ideas are endless and we’d love to hear from you what ideas you have used in the past or are using this year.
Here are a few ideas for fun Ayyam-i-Ha crafts we’ve come across:
- Creative card-making
- Stringing prayer beads (either 19 beads with 5 to “count,” or 95 beads)
- Making frames (either decorate a store-bought one, or make your own out of cardboard)
- Creating homemade cards for friends, neighbors, or parents’ co-workers
- Sharing Fasting encouragement (make a booklet or poster with quotations on the Fast for parents or older siblings)
From Merika: These are some paper decorations I made. They are made out of light-weight card stock paper of different colors. I used a youtube video to make the flowers (like this one) as well as the stars (like this one).
Bita shared how her son wrote out a short quotation for each year since learning to write, and she displays them on her Ayyam-i-Ha table.
Kelly shared how she made nine-pointed star ornaments with her children.
Her recipe was: 4 cups flour, 1.5 cups water, 1 cup salt, 2 tbspn vegetable oil. When rolling out the dough use parchment paper or flour to prevent sticking. We used the nine pointed star cookie cutters from Special Ideas, and use a straw or chopstick for the hole, then bake at 350F till cooked. Because we did the largest nine pointed star, it took about 2 hours. Smaller ornaments may take 1 hr.
This year we decorated bookmarks and posted a quotation on the back to give to friends and family.
We hope you’ve enjoyed the posts about celebrating Ayyam-i-Ha over the past 10 days! This is the last in our series leading up to the Ayyam-i-Ha this year but you can still add photos and comments to these posts at any time, which will help for families planning for Ayyam-i-Ha in the future. We hope you have enjoyed the series and that you will share your post-celebration photos after Ayyam-i-Ha.
Looking forward to seeing your pictures and hearing your ideas!
