I Love Allah This Much Card

Since today is the first day of Ramadan, we thought we'd start with a light craft.  This one is super easy for little hands and doesn't take up much supplies.

We made a card that says I Love Allah This Much, with the words This Much written accordion style between two trances of my daughter's hands.  The card is foldable and fits into an envelope, and when your recipient opens it, the card will expand.

Allah is the Arabic word for God and is said by Muslims, Christian and Jewish Arabs.  We made the card to give to my daughter's Islamic teacher at school.



Supplies
Sheet of double sided paper (ours was 12x12)
Letter stickers
Glue stick
Pencil
Scissors

Have your child trace out their hand on one side of a sheet of paper.  It's fun to use double sided paper so that there is color on both sides.

Fold your paper in half and have them cut out the hands so that you'll have two copies.  Since my 5 year old was having a problem holding the paper, I added a little paperclip for her.

Cut a strip of paper that is 12inches by 2 inches.  This can be taller or shorter depending on the size of letter stickers you end up using.  Fold the paper so that you have eleven folds, so about an inch wide. 

Have your child write out the words "I Love Allah" on one of the hands.  It's a good idea to do this before you glue on the strip to the inside of the hand.

Then have them write out the words "This Much" on the strip of paper.
Once you've got all your letters on the papers will look like this:


Glue the accordion folded paper to the inside of the hand.


You are done!
